Are you an adventurous crafter looking for something a little out of the ordinary? Try our Banana Fiber Yarn for something that’s a little out of the ordinary!
Made from the sustainable fibers that are scraped from the bark of a banana tree and handspun by women’s co-ops in India, our vibrant Banana Fiber Yarn is a soft, plant based alternative.
Available in assorted different colors our Banana Fiber Yarn is vibrant and perfect for knitting, crocheting and more.
How does the yarn get so soft? After harvesting the banana fibers from the trunk of the 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 biodegradable so it’s completely vegan and eco-friendly!
