"This may be the easiest pattern you’ll ever create. If you follow my patterns you will notice a trend; I aim for high impact, yet simple, designs. I prefer to achieve visual interest with textures, colors, shapes, and simple stitches rather than complicated designs. I want everyone to be able to make my patterns, from the basic of beginners to the more advanced crafters. That is one reason I LOVE banana fiber yarn. The texture is amazing and the visual interest is superb. There are many things I love about this yarn. It is a super soft yet durable yarn, that comes from the outer layers of the banana fiber tree. These fibers are harvested, then soaked in water to quicken the natural dissolving of the chlorophyll structures, leaving just the cellulose fibers. These fibers are then extruded into pulp and spun into yarn. Because of this banana fiber is a self-renewable fiber, which is the other reason I love it so."

Ive heard of yarns made of all sorts of things, but banana fiber is a new one on me. Theoretically, it should have a similar texture to the bamboo yarns. I was at a fiber arts event and someone had woven a sample swatch from silk and another from bamboo. You could hardly feel the difference! I hope these alternative yarns show up in mainstream craft stores soon.

What a neat idea for turning banana leaves into yarn fibers. I have never heard of anything like this! The colors are superb and very summer-like. I don't see wearing this during the warm months, but I wish I could! I guess I'd flaunt it with a black top or sweater so it would really pop! Has anyone else tried working with this yarn?

I haven't but I'd love to. I wonder how you get on yarn sample lists?
