Darn Good Yarn Banana Fibre Yarn

Availability: In stock (19)

Banana fiber is super soft yet durable, and a great renewable resource. This vegan yarn is made from decaying outer layers of the banana tree bark are harvested, then soaked in water to quicken the natural dissolving of the chlorophyll structures, leaving just the cellulose fibers. These are extruded into a pulp and spun into yarn. Reminiscent of Bamboo yarn - Hand-spun, so it may have some inconsistencies like thick and thin spots, or knots. You can knit or crochet with this but I brought it in for weaving.
