A deliciously silky yarn that has no natural stretch when balled up from the hank and knits beautifully. It has a really wonderful drape and weight to your finished piece of fiber art.

Often described as a vegan alternative to silk, banana fibre has the versatility of silk. This yarn has been spun tightly to form a strong, thick yarn with a gorgeous sheen and a lovely slubby texture.

I buy these art yarns directly from women's co-operatives. Yarns that I sell are inspirational like the women that produce them.

India has a population of over one billion people with huge disparities of wealth. It is both reassuring and inspiring that these co-operatives are educating, employing and empowering women to take control of their finances, enabling to send their children to school, and to take charge of the family income. It is also reassuring to see how well established the Co-operative Movement is and it is our hope to better the lives of people through trade, skills and education.
