Fiesta hand dyed pastel banana laceweight yarn aka vegan silk

Shared by SixSkeins in the Knitting

Product Description:

100grams of amazing hand-dyed pure banana laceweight knitting yarn in the pastel Fiesta colourway, hand-dyed by me in Cornwall, England.

Also known as vegan silk, this new natural fiber yarn is made from the bark of the banana tree. It is soft and lightweight with a beautiful sheen and drape, making it ideal for next-to-skin summer garments.
This fine yarn has amazing yardage providing great value for money; knit a UK size 10 tunic from just 1 skein of this yarn! Knit as 4ply for a lacy look.
