Banana Threads

Banana Threads

Fibre is taken from the stem or shoots of the banana tree.  It is processed and refined to produce a lightweight, highly absorbent and ecologically friendly fibre that is comfortable to wear.  Banana has been used in Japan for kimonos since the 13th century as it has good luster and drape.

Banana threads are different from Banana Top.  It is less of a fibre and more a fine, shiny thread. It may be used in spinning, felting, or paper-making.

Banana Threads are packaged in 25 gram portions.
