Unusual Plant-Based Fibre
This Dandelion fibre from Ada Fibres has been derived from dandelion plants and is one of many new plant-based silk alternatives. Dandelion is a cellulose fibre made from the whole dandelion plant (including the flowers, stems and leaves). Through a viscose process, the dandelion is made into a nano grade powder before being wet spun (in a closed-loop process) into the fibre slivers. Dandelion is a strong fibre, beautifully ivory in colour with a stunning lustre. Being a natural fibre, dandelion is biodegradable and takes to fibre reactive dyes.
Once spun, the dandelion yarn has a beautiful drape and lovely shine. It can be spun on its own or blended with another fibre for a truly unique yarn. Dandelion fibre can also be used in felting projects or carded into amazing art batts.
The Ada Fibres Dandelion comes in sliver form in 100g lots, measuring approximately 7g/m.
