This article is about the current version of DF.

Jute is an aboveground crop. The plant may be processed at a farmer's workshop to produce jute plant fiber thread.

Some dwarves like jute plants for their fibrous stems.

Admired for its fibrous stems.

In Real-Life[edit]

Jute is grown almost exclusively in India and surrounding countries because it is dependent upon monsoon rains as part of its life cycle, however, in the current version of DF, it merely requires tropical climates.

The fabric most associated with jute is burlap, and its tough but rough fibers are frequently used in burlap sacks containing common goods. Amusingly, it is widely used to contain cotton bales, which are used to make clothing.
