Another hemp yarn! I’m trained as a herbalist so I have an affinity for the plant fibres that really show their texture in a yarn, such as flax or jute. Hemp is the king of texture, but it’s much more difficult to spin with, having a strong odour before it’s washed, having such incredible strength that it’s hard to card up… yet it produces the most unique yarns, and I always sing for joy when I finish a hemp yarn!

This one is a blend of equal parts hemp and merino fleece, the merino in blues and greens. It's single ply, as strong as rope (which is one of the traditional uses of hemp) and although it is too coarse to be worn against the skin, it’s a yarn that can be used to make amazing things because of its richness in texture. I have a pair of knitting needles the size of curtain rods, and using just the knit stitch I made a curtain with it that looks like a beautiful fisherman’s net!

A 100 gram single ply skein, approximately 125 yards long, spun in a pet and smoke free environment. Yarn gauge = Sport, 12/13 wraps per inch as it is spun in a mildly thick & thin style. Can be spun in greater amounts if needed, just let me know!
