Banana Silk Fusion Yarn
This yarn is made from 20% recycled silk and 80% banana fibre and when knitted has a soft 'body' with a wealth of textured threads that come out from the surface. The colors are wonderfully blended and it is fun to knit.
Each skein is 100 g and will be between 65-70 meres in length depending on the weight/texture of the individual yarns.
There is a lovely gloss and rich luster to the appearance of the Indian sari yarn, with a soft handle and rather than the texture of the "Sari Yarn" it has a smooth, reflective surface. The yarn has no elasticity so use it along with another yarn to add some stretch and memory.
An excellent yarn for all types of textile projects requiring rich, deep color and texture including knitting and crochet, weaving and braids and embellishment within quilts, patchwork and embroidery.
The beauty of these hand spun yarns are that they are all unique and packed full of texture and character so no two is ever alike. If you order more than one of the same colors please state whether you would like us to pick the most similar or the most different with the other
