Darn Good Yarn presents beautiful 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 great choice for anything from weaving a rug to knitting a hat! And don't be scared by the word "fiber," because there is nothing scratchy about this yarn at all. After harvesting the fibers 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!
Each 100g skein yields 30 yards of hand spun yarn. The gauge on our yummy banana fiber yarns is 2-2.5 stitches to the inch on size US 9 (5.5mm) needles, or you could use a size US 10.5 - K (6.5mm) crochet hook! Darn Good Yarn is committed to bringing you fun and funky yarns with purpose and connection.
