Abrome Fibre
ABROME FIBRE
Fine silky fibres yielded by the Abroma Augusta plant, a native of the East Indies. The fibre is obtained from the white bark and used for cordage and many purposes for which jute is employed. Owing to their whiteness and cleanliness it is suggested as a substitute for silk. Also known as Devil's cotton and perennial Indian hemp.
