Regular price £12.00

Handspun organic Cactus plant yarn has been made from 100% Cactus leaves.  It is an ancient and natural fibre. The leaves are beaten so the pulp and other materials can be removed leaving only the fibers. These fibers are then spun into thread for twine and textile, or else they are pulped for the manufacturing of paper products.

This yarn has a fuzzy texture to it. It is very like twine with a pearly sheen. I believe some crafters make cat scrapping mats (not sure of the real name as I don't own a cat). It is also used in macrame, basket weaving, jewellery, eco gift wrap and fibre arts.

Handpsun in India by a group of women I work with in India.

These skeins are 95 - 100g skeins. Approx 100 yards in each.
