Banana YarnSKU: 12343
Description Hand spun yarn.
The banana plant used for fibre production is called Abaca (Musa Textilis) and is a non – fruit bearing species of banana. The fibre has a very silky feel. It is a cool fibre and therefore ideal to wear as a knitted, woven or crochet garment in our tropical north Queensland. The fibre Ulla uses is of high quality and white as it has been left in the sun to bleach during production. To “loosen” up the fibre or to make it very soft Ulla ply’s the hand spun banana fibre with a commercial spun silk noil which has an uneven surface which creates an interesting texture once used for weaving, knitting or crochet.
