Banana and cotton blended together is beautifully soft and feels just like cotton wool. Single ply and easy to knit with, this yarn is so full of lustre and very popular in the knitting work as it makes super soft clothing, sweaters, throws, baby blankets and more.
Produced by a women’s co-operative in Northern India for Yarn Yarn. This soft eco yarn has been spun using a charka not a drop spindle giving the yarn its uniformity.
Each 100g skein is approximately 120 yards. Handwash in light detergent, lay flat to dry.
Biodegradable. Fair trade.
Yarn Yarn prides itself with handmade craft supplies and eco-friendly, recycled yarns that are fair trade and handmade by women’s co-operatives and small communities in rural India. Many of their yarns are made from waste leftover from the sari mills in India. Every sale of their products helps to support and provide sustainable living within these communities.
This Banana yarn is a unique yarn that mimics silk – very soft and versatile. Banana yarn has a heavy drape to it and no stretch. Super for knitting and crocheting bags, hats, scarves, jewellery making, mixed-media, crafts and more.
Hand-spun, so each skein may have some inconsistencies like thick and thin spots, which brings beauty & uniqueness to your final product!
