Rope-making fibre (5)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

sisal

(Other definitions for sisal that I've seen before include "Plant fibre used for ropes" , "Plant yielding rope fibre" , "Rope fibre from leaves of tropical plant" , "Agave cultivated for its fibre" , "Fibre of Mexican agave" .)

I've seen this clue in the Evening Standard.
