Undyed Natural banana Fibre for Spinning and Wet Felting - 10grams


The banana plant has long been a source of fiber for high quality textiles. In Japan, banana cultivation for clothing and household use dates back to at least the 13th century. In the Japanese system, leaves and shoots are cut from the plant periodically to ensure softness. Harvested shoots are first boiled in lye to prepare fibers for yarn-making.

Banana fibre is very soft and shiny and is great for using in your hand spun yarns.
