Calling all intermediate tufters! A realistic eye, a watery surface, a glint on glass—our new Banana Silk yarn is a great way to add shimmer, color, and variation to your wall hanging or other decorative tuft. Made entirely from banana plant fiber, the delicate and slick texture of this yarn requires combining with a sturdier fiber, like Reflect Wool or Eco-cotton, in order to create a dense pile.* Banana Silk will be brightest in loop piles, while use in cut-pile pieces will allow for interesting flecks of shine. A fun yarn for adding embroidered or hand-sewn elements, too!

*Additional Use Tips: 

The following estimates show the number of other yarn strands/cones you’ll want to thread in combination with Banana Silk in order to create an adequately dense pile.  

  • 2 cones of Reflect Wool + 2 or 3 cones of Banana Silk will create a dense and moderately shiny cut or loop-pile. 
  • 2 cones of Eco-cotton + 2 or 3 cones of Banana Silk will create a dense and moderately shiny cut or loop-pile tuft. 
  • 2 cones of Recycled Wool in Grapefruit + 3 cones of Banana Silk will create a dense, shiny, and textured cut or loop-pile tuft. 
  • 2 cones of Recycled Wool in Glow in the Dark + 2 cones of Banana Silk will create a dense, shiny, and luminous cut or loop-pile tuft. 
  • Used on its own, 4 - 5 cones of Banana Silk will create a dense and shiny loop-pile tuft. 

Note that you’ll need a yarn feeder that can accommodate 3 - 5 cones at a time.
