There is a good amount of banana fiber on the market, but in the past I have not liked selling it because a lot of it is super coarse and not so nice. After years of searching, I have finally found a supplier who is working with me to make the softest, most beautiful recycled banana fiber on the market, and this is it! This is still 100% banana fiber (often called "vegan silk" as a nick name), and is as soft as real silk.

Sold in 1oz quantities (approximately 28 grams). 

Yes, this fiber is made from banana trees! This beautiful fiber comes from a renewable, sustainable and environmentally-friendly source. It is unbelievably soft and has a shine that you must see to truly appreciate!

This is 100% banana fiber, pulled into the tiniest of threads in a manner similar to sari silk. Have I mentioned how shiny and soft it is?

Read on to find out how banana silk is made.

When bananas are harvested the plant is cut back, and the fibers are found in the discarded stems. Fibers are also taken from the decaying outer layers of banana trees so that the inner bark is not harmed. These fibers are then soaked, boiled, and sun-dried. Once dry, the fiber is cleaned, combed, and made ready for spinning. The result is the most wonderful, silky fiber I have ever felt - the fiber shines like wet glass, is even more lustrous than silk, and is incredibly soft and strong.

Banana silk fiber looks very similar to sari silk (but with a much shinier appearance), and spins up to have a wonderful fuzzy effect from the various strands of fiber. Unlike sari silk, however, banana silk fiber is about 10 times softer, making a truly skin-soft fiber that you will want to snuggle into.

Thank you for looking!
