Hey Rock; the jute is it in strands and do you have to tie each individual strand? I have an idea about using burlap. I will try this as a demo only. take a strip of burlap about 14" tall and as wide as your garment. Dip dye the strips in different solutions or try a tye dye effect(LOL) roll the end over about twice and then sew it along the bottom of the garment repeat this about every one to 3 inches. may work somewhat. Time will tell. This would work well in a large grassy plain due to the limited color scheme.
