Bellatrista's Banana (16Nm/4) fiber is a unique option designed specifically for weavers.
Bast fiber from banana has a slightly stiff hand that produces structured fabrics much like linen. It's great for housewares or decorative weaves. To create a more wearable fabric, combine a banana warp with a soy or milk weft.

Celebrate color and texture with Trendsetter's worsted-weight Cin Cin yarn. Made in Italy, this fun slub yarn’s name means “Cheers!” or “to your health!”. It’s constructed of a blend of viscose, cotton, acrylic, and polyester and is one of the two yarns featured in Deborah Jarchow’s beautiful woven CinCin and Silkhair Poncho (available as a Pattern & Kit in our Pattern section).
Slub yarns are yarns with thick and thin sections alternating regularly or irregularly to create varied texture. Combine that with this yarn’s vibrant, eclectic colors, and Cin Cin is as much fun to work with as it is to wear! Great choice for knitting and crochet, as well as weaving.
