Fibre woven to make sails? (5)
I believe the answer is:
'fibre' is the definition.
(I know that sisal is a type of plant fiber)
'woven to make sails?' is the wordplay.
'sails' anagrams to 'SISAL'.
But, I am not sure how this is indicated.
Can you help me to learn more?
(Other definitions for sisal that I've seen before include "Hemp fibre" , "Plant fibre used for ropes" , "Fibre used in rope-making" , "Plant fibre used for making rope" , "Strong rope fibre" .)
