You’ve seen them before! The pretty summer hats and beach bags that instantly get you in a sunny, sandy, vacation mood. The incredible accessories made from raffia that make their way back to the city and beach every summer (even though we firmly believe that a beautiful raffia bag can be worn all year!).
You can do all this with our Rafaella!
Rafaella is made from 100% raffia paper (raffia is originally made from palms), is durable, and recyclable. We do not recommend that the yarn comes in contact with wet or moist objects, e.g. a wet towel. Colors may transfer.
Small tip: Rafaela can also be used as ribbon when you wrap presents. A more sustainable and prettier alternative to the classic plastic ribbons.

I find this yarn a bit tough to crochet and used a bigger hook than recommended. But I do like the fact that it is stiff enough to stand up when making a beach bag! Other raffias I’ve used are easier to work with but the resulting bag is floppy
I like this paper yarn and was waiting for it to come back. I made wide-brim sun hats from them and gave them to my friends as presents. Everyone was very happy.
This is my second project. I liked working with it this time much better. The roll looks small, but goes on forever. Very sad they are discontinuing it
I like how compact they were able to get it on there and I love the bright colors! Perfect for summer items! I'm planning a hat, a rug, and a purse!
The Raffia yarn is quite stiff to work with. However, the final outcome is amazing, it is strong enough to hold the shape. The skein looks a bit small at first glance, two skeins are enough for making a bag.
