Hemp for Knitting allhemp6

Hemp for Knitting allhemp6

A yarn we feel good about in every way.

Made from a renewable resource, grown without pesticides or herbicides, hemp yarn won't shrink, stretch, fade or pill! Hemp For Knitting's allhemp6 is wet-spun of long line hemp fibers and mercerized for color fastness, softness and sheen. Cool in the summer and warm in the winter, nature's strongest, most long-wearing fiber makes the perfect sweater yarn, especially for kids and men who run hot.

Your hemp skeins will be a little stiff when they first arrive but give them a chance—your yarn will soften as you knit and get softer and softer every time you wash and dry it. Hemp For Knitting's Canadian founder, Lana Hames, offers this suggestion: If your hands are particularly sensitive, pre-soak your skeins in hot water and a little hair conditioner and air dry thoroughly before you knit. (If you want to try this tip, don't tick the "Please wind my yarn" box when you place your order.)

If you crochet, you might enjoy our Crocheted Baskets in allhemp 6. For knitters, we love this yarn for our Easy Peasy Baby Jacket (dk-weight version) and our Picot-Edge Baby Blanket & Washcloth. And we think it would be awfully nice for our Easy Folded Poncho.

100% Long Fiber Hemp. Hand or machine wash; lay flat or tumble dry.
