Bast Yarns & Fibres

Plant-Based Fibres

Baste fibres are obtained from the bark, stem, or leaf of certain vegetable plants. These are a family of fibres that make way for the entire plant to be used to produce yarn.

Being low maintenance, high-quality fibres, these are also sustainable, eco-friendly options as they put nutrients back into the earth, take up less space, and use less water. For these reasons, bast fibres have become a great alternative for environmental responsibility.

Bast fibres are soft, woody fibres obtained from stems of plants. Specifically, bast fibres are cellulose fibres that have been derived through the retting process (not viscous process). Shop our collection of bast fibres including hemp, linen, nettle and ramie.
