Kaleidoscope Banana Fiber Yarn – Worsted Weight, 100 g/50 yards on Sale Today!

Kaleidoscope Banana Fiber Yarn is worsted weight and full of all of the rockin' colors of a kaleidoscope, balanced by a glossy, rich finish that renders this yarn utterly fantastic. Banana fiber is super soft, yet durable and a great renewable resource. The 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 pulp and spun into yarn. Need a gift for the vegan crafter in your life? Darn Good Yarns Banana Fiber Yarn is a great choice! Each 100 gram ball gives you a full 50 yards of banana fiber yarn. The gauge on our yummy banana fiber yarns is 3-3.5 stitches to the inch on size US 8 (5.0mm) needles, or you could use a size US 8-H (5.0mm) crochet hook. There will be inconsistencies every now and then, like thick and thin spots or knots, but that is what gives this fiber its charm and proves that is made by a human hand, not a machine! There are no dye lots, so I recommend that you buy all your banana fiber yarn at once to complete your project. Please always dry clean or handwash your wonderful creations and lay flat to dry. Darn Good Yarn is committed to bringing you fun and funky yarns with purpose and connection. All of our yarns are hand made by women's co-ops in India and Nepal. The women who work for us are hand-selected for their skill and given a wage that not only allows them to become self-sufficient and provide for the basic needs of their family. When you create with Darn Good Yarn, not only are you making something that is totally unique, you are making something that you can feel good about.
