Surely the king of natural fibres? With its beautiful lustre and texture, sisal can be woven to have generous soft loops suitable for a film star’s bedroom. It can also be used to polish stainless steel and be spun to form ropes strong enough to tie up an ocean liner.
The best pure sisal yarn starts life in the fronds of the agave sisalana plant grown in East Africa and South America. It ends up at our showrooms in many different hues from creamy natural white through golds and greys to chocolates and even high-tech black. The fineness of pure sisal fibre allows it to be spun in many different gauges yielding a wonderful variety of exciting geometric textures, but always with great strength and durability.
