We do actually make things, not just blog about making things.  A few weeks ago, I tried weaving a scarf out of a new “eco-friendly” fiber – banana silk combined with tencel.  The banana fiber is think-and-thin, so it gives an interesting appearance to the finished work.   The look and feel of the finished work is beautiful, except for the fringe. The fiber itself unraveled at the ends, so I’ll need to change up how I do that in the future.

If you have any suggestions on working with Banana silk, or some of those other new fibers, please let us know!
