Fiber Fun Month ~ Banana Silk Fiber Info

Wednesday, December 10, 2014

Banana silk fiber... now that is something you don't hear every day! Who would have thought you could have amazingly beautiful yarn from a banana tree. And even though it is called silk it really is only made from banana trees! It is a renewable resource and is similar to Ramie and Bamboo fiber. Banana silk has great tensile strength and a lovely gentle sheen. It can be used in dying, spun into lovely yarn, used in felting, and more! So if you are looking for a wonderful yet really eco friendly fiber you should definitely check out banana silk!
