Often described as a vegan alternative to silk, banana fibre has the versatility of silk and a glorious lustre. The beautiful white yarn can be dyed into vibrant shades without losing the fabulous glossy character. The yarn feels lovely and soft and will add an element of luxury to any project.
After fruit and leaves harvested bark of the tree is used which otherwise have gone waste the fibers extracted from the trunk of the banana tree, they are put through a softening process that makes the fiber very similar to silk. Then when it’s spun, it is as soft as silk - soft and strong, full of texture, color, and bio-degradable so it’s completely vegan and eco-friendly
An excellent yarn for all types of textile projects requiring soft colours and a smooth texture including knitting and crochet, weaving, hat making braids and tassels and embellishment within quilts, patchwork and embroidery.
Unlike the yarns spun from recycled fabrics, this banana yarn has a more even texture and is actually dyed in batches, so just remember that these dyelots may change slightly from batch to batch, so order enough to complete your project
Also available in Undyed Ideal for making your own choice of colours
