Man has made yarns from a huge variety of barks and leaves since the beginning of our time, so it comes as little surprise that there are yarns made from the pineapple plant! A relative of the commercial pineapple plant is used to create a gorgeous rustic and natural yarn.
The pineapple plant is a native to the South American rain forest. It is able to be continually harvested and unlike many traditionally harvested plants does not need additional fertilisers, land or water to grow. It is truly a sustainable crop.
Use this beautiful yarn where you might use raffia or hemp. Craft beautiful baskets, bags, hats and mats for a stunning effect.
