Differences in quality are generally associated with differences
in the total length of the fibre strands. With increase in their average length, the mass
of unit length of strands increases. It has been observed that the fibre which feels
heavier in the hand tends to have higher spinning quality.
Colour & Lustre
The natural fibre colour of white jute is white creamy and that of
tossa jute is golden. Any adverse deviation from the natural colour is considered to be
bad. Lustre is a characteristic of shine when light falls on the fibre. The more the
shine, the better the quality.
is a very important characteristic. The stronger the fibre the better the quality. No
product can be made from weak fibre. The strength is divided into five levels, viz. very
strong, strong, sound, average and any strength.
finer and stronger the fibre, the better the quality.
