One of the major issues M0co ran into early on in his rope bondage career was the rope itself. A fan of using natural fiber jute rope, it became a problem finding an affordable source in the U.S., and anything that was affordable was either twisted too tightly or too loosely for M0co’s tastes. What’s a rigger to do in this situation? Make his own rope, of course! After five generations of rope making, M0co has finally perfected M0co jute; a seemingly hybrid version of asanawa and tossa. The twist isn’t so tight as to feel like cable, but isn’t so loose that it can easily high strand. It’s wonderfully light, has an exquisite energy and flow, and makes for beautiful photographs and ties.
Original M0co jute rope is made from a high quality jute yarn. It’s done in a seven (7) ply, three (3) strand twist, totaling in twenty one (21) strands of yarn. As a final product, this equals approximately six millimeters (6 mm) in diameter.
We’re also happy to announce the unveiling of our MOco Nawa (Formally MBE)jute rope. We were able to find some of the most beautiful pale gold/white single ply twine possible. This three stand rope is comprised of 12yarns per strand, with a relatively loose lay and twist. The final product is approximately 6mm in diameter. This rope is the perfect balance of weight, compression, and flow.
We’re also offering WykD Moco, a spectacular jute rope collaboration with Wykd Dave himself. After workshopping this rope for over a year, Wykd Dave gave final approval for this lovely golden single ply yarn. This three strand rope is comprised of 10 yarns per stand, with a loose lay and twist. The final product is approximately 6mm in diameter. If Wykd Dave approves of it, you know it’s got to be good.
Our -EM- spec jute rope is also available. We workshopped a gorgeous single ply blonde colored jute yarn with a medium twist and lay to produce a 3 strand product with 10 yarns per stand. This 5.5 mm diameter rope is as durable as it is beautiful, perfect for those who need their rope to be slightly more durable.
Each rope is hand twisted by M0co himself; no rope machines are used in this product! The outcome is a finely crafted artisanal jute rope for all your bondage needs. M0co jute changes and evolves with your style, becoming something very personal. It’s a beautiful experience.
Ropes are cut to approximately eight meters (8 m) in length, or approximately twenty-six feet (26ft). We’ve found anything over thirty feet becomes cumbersome to work with and anything less than twenty feet interrupts the flow of tying.
M0co offers a variety of finishes for his jute:
- Raw, untreated, and unsinged: For those who like to personalize their rope treatment, this jute will come cut into eight meter lengths. This option is great for those wanting to save some money on jute. This is a vegan friendly option.
- Singed, oiled, and baked: A mid-grade treatment for M0co jute, M0co hand singes the rope at the perfect temperature to get rid of pesky extra fuzzies and fibers, lightly coats it with mineral oil, and bakes it. This helps jute retain its moisture and softens it, making it ready to play as soon as it’s delivered to you. This option is perfect for those who want to be able to use their jute right out of the package. This treatment is a vegan friendly option.
- Singed, waxed, and baked: A deluxe treatment for M0co jute, M0co hand singes the rope at the perfect temperature to get rid of pesky extra fuzzies and fibers, lightly coats the ropes in a beeswax/mineral oil mixture and bakes it. This gives the rope an ultra conditioned finish. This option is perfect for those who want soft jute right away or want to use their jute long-term.
