Abaca Fibre (813 words)
This fibre is also known in the trade as manila and manila hemp, but abaca is a hard fibre and is entirely different from true hemp, which is a soft fibre and is the product of Cannabis sativa.
The fibre so cleaned has only to be hung up to dry in the open air, when, without further treatment, it is ready to be graded and baled for shipment.
The quality or grade of abaca fibre is determined by the part of the stalk from which the fibre is obtained, by the amount of serration of the stripping knives and the degree of tension holding the knife against the block, and by prompt and careful drying of the fibre.
