About natural raffia:

Natural, undyed Madagascan raffia, sustainably grown and harvested.

Raffia is the shredded leaves of the palmyra palm, native to Madagascar. The mature leaves typically grow several metres long. They are then shredded along the width to get a beautifully long and strong fibre suitable for many types of craft.

Hundreds of metres, depending on how you use it, and will make lots and lots of baskets, bags, etc. Suitable for dyeing (please use dyes responsibly).

Comes tightly bound in a hank.
