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.

  • Black, Blue, or Brown
  • 100% banana fiber wool
  • Dry clean or hand wash; dry flat
  • Made in and fairly traded from Nepal

February 13, 2013 - Beautiful sweater - runs a little large, but drapes nicely. The texture really is similar to wool - amazing.

January 5, 2013 - 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.
