The immature husks are suspended in a river or water-filled pit for up to ten months. During this time micro-organisms break down the plant tissues surrounding the fibres to loosen them – a process known as retting. Segments of the husk are then beaten by hand to separate out the long fibres, which are subsequently dried and cleaned. Cleaned fibre is ready for spinning into yarn using a simple one-handed system or a spinning wheel.
The Major use of White fibre is for rope manufacture
Mats of woven coir fibre are made from the finer grades of bristle and white fibre using hand or mechanical looms
White coir also is used to make fishing nets due to its strong resistance to saltwater.
