    Question Is jute/hessian fabric OK?

    I want to make a cape that I can attach toys to and wear for Wookie to climb over while on me (got a velcro bird!). I thought jute fabric would work well - easy for little feet to cling to and easy to attach bits of leather and stuff to it.
    But is there anything regarding its safety I should know about? I will pick a natural one without chemical treatments.
    Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks guys

    I don't think so. It won't tear loose as easily as cotton, so if unsupervised, she could catch a toe, but you're not planning to leave her unsupervised, so I don't see any...

    Thanks jojo, I think it is just something I am going to have to try and see what happens. Wookie likes to get a grip on the fabric and then start swinging upside down, she can't seem to do it from fleece or close weave fabrics. Loose knitted jumpers seem to be her favorite. That's why I was thinking about jute. ummmmm.....or maybe I should knit one
