Item details

Recycled banana silk yarn is made up of waste silk pieces from industrial weaving mills in India. Banana silk is a sustainable fiber that is harvested from the bark of banana trees. For this yarn, the reclaimed waste strands of silk are hand separated and then handspun by women in Nepal. Creating this vibrant yarn gives these women financial independence and a means to raise their families.

This yarn is a truly recycled product! It is a bulky weight and is soft and easy to knit, weave, braid or crochet. It can be used for a variety of crafts and fiber arts! These skeins come in a lovely lilac purple color. They are very soft and light! Each skein / hank weighs approximately 3.5 ounces (100 grams) and measures approximately 40-50 yards of yarn each.

This yarn makes wonderful hats, scarves, bags, trim, fringe, wraps, jewelry and more!

Happy crafting!
