Habu FQ-1 'Fique' (pineapple plant)
A nice robust fibre, fique works well for making items such as mats, window coverings, bags, hats and even loofah style washcloths where a little extra durability is desirable. Suitable for weaving, basketry, knitting & crocheting.
A great sustainable resource grown in South America and from the pineapple family, fique is made from the highest leaves of the Furcraea spp. plant, which are harvested, shredded, washed, dried, combed and then spun.
