Natural Raffia: 250g Florist grade
If you're new to basket weaving and prefer to start with a smaller quantity of raffia then we highly recommend a 250g bundle to get you started. This is excellent quality, long strand and light toned fibre.
Premium Madagascan raffia - natural and undyed - sustainably grown and harvested.
Beautiful long fibres of florist grade raffia (over 1.5m length) sourced from Besalampy, Madagascar and imported directly by us.
There's also the option to buy these bundles in bulk and save, with the bonus of keeping your raffia tidier as you won't need to have large hanks open everywhere!
Harvested in 2017.
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.
