Can I use Sisal rope to create a netting to hold down the Schach?

 

Question:

We just bought our first Sukkah without Schach parts like mats or bamboo poles. I was wondering about the usage of Sisal rope can it be used to create a netting to hold Schach. If yes is there a limitation as to the diameter of the rope?

 

Answer:

The Schach may be tied down with reeds or unprocessed fiber threads. Similarly, a Schach mat may be used when strung together with unprocessed fiber threads. However, one may not use ropes which are comprised of processed fibers.
