From Darn Good Yarns
Didn’t Mom always tell you fruit is good for you? Boy, was she ever right! This banana fiber yarn is like potassium for your creativity! Rockin’ colors reminiscent of a kaleidoscope, the most endearing of childhood toys, are balanced by a glossy, rich finish that renders this yarn utterly sophisticated!
Banana fiber is super soft yet durable, and a great renewable resource. This vegan yarn is made from 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.
