Fair trade handspun hemp 100g


Material: 100% hemp
Country of origin: Nepal

A single ply, thin yet strong with a very earthy, organic feel. Ideal to use in textured wall art and most fibre arts (not so much for garments), to crochet into washers etc if you're looking for a bit of a scrub effect. Similar in thickness and appearance as the nettle yarn, but warmer tone. Averages around 1mm thick. Will soften with use, but looks amazing corcheted and knitted into shopping bags and plied with other yarns and fibres.
