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!).
We love the look so much that we just had to have our very own raffia yarn. May we present: Rafaella!
Rafaella is made from 100% raffia paper (raffia is originally made from palms), is durable, and recyclable.
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
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!
Love working with the raffia. Make for a great purse. It is stiff, but not to hard to work with
It's great for a paper raffia yarn but I had a hard time crocheting with it. It took me a while to finish my project because this yarn is quite stiff for my liking. The result of my project was pretty good though.
