These natural dyed and undyed yarns blend the softness of wool with the strength of hemp to produce a unique texture. With a range of beautiful organic colours, they are ideal for crochet, knitting and many other organic craft projects.
The strength of this blended yarns is slightly weaker than those spun on high-tech machines. Therefore, it’s worth bearing in mind its delicacy when choosing this yarn. For example, it makes a great weft for weaving projects, but would not handle the tension required if used for the warp. We’d recommended using this yarn 2 ply for knitwear projects, either two strands of hemp wool or perhaps knitting a strand alongside an additional yarn of your choice.
This yarn knits up similar to double knit, but we always recommend you to knit up a tension guage if following a pattern.
