This is the 2nd TdF16 podcasts, there will be one more.
I talk about washing alpaca fiber, dyeing shetland and lamb's wool fiber, and as my challenge day project, spinning banana fiber.
All of the links below are information I found on the internet about banana fiber.
Home processing (something so unavailable to most of us!) is shown in a youtube video by Rix Jennings.
Commercial processing (and very poor audio, sorry) is shown here.
A non verbal commercial processing video. It is long, but if you only have time for one video, I recommend it be this one.
A video of felted banana cloth being made.
Here's on crochet project I found for the yarn (lots of pop ups and ads, sorry).
Finally, Darn Good Yarn, shows banana yarn available on their website.
