The downy caress of banana fiber wool transforms our cowl neck sweater into an opulent pleasure for body and eye. Soft as a whisper in sumptuous earth shades, it marries luxury with environmentally responsible cachet. Handmade to perfection in Nepal.
Banana plants yield delicious fruit and a silky-soft fiber used as a textile throughout the world, especially in Nepal and Japan. Similar to silk, our banana fiber is refined, processed, and skeined by Nepalese women for use in our luxurious clothing.

As gorgeous as the photo. Banana fiber tends to unravel easily, so be gentle on it.

Beautiful sweater - runs a little large, but drapes nicely. The texture really is similar to wool - amazing.

Sweater is great. I have an issue with the size chart however. I think I could have worn a medium. I ordered a large based on the size chart. I find the size charts on many items are often problematic.

I know a thing or two about knitting and this sweater represents a horrible knitting job. The wool/fiber has multiple wrips and holes. poor quality overall

I got this sweater a little less than 1 year ago. I've only worn it a handful of times. The first time wearing it I noticed a hole in one of the arms; I did my best to repair it with needle and thread. Since then more thumb-size holes have appeared in various places. It's not moths eating the sweater- the banana fiber thread pulls apart. Very poor quality, especially for what I paid.
