Yarnspinners Tales's Podcast
Exploring the world of fiber, one draft at a time.

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.

I only found one blog that talked about banana fiber, it is Fiber of my Being. There's part 1 and part 2.

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.
