It is coarse and harsh, with good resistance to

 

microorganisms and insects. The fiber has moderate dry

 

strength but low wet strength.It has low elongation, which

 

helps it retain its shape when made into items such as sacs.

produce. It also has fair abrasion resistance. Its main end

 

uses include burlap fabric for bagging, fabric for interior

 

furnishings, carpets backing, and cordage.
