Hemp for Knitting Allhemp3 are long line wetspun yarns in vibrant colours and they provide outstanding drape and longevity similar to linen.
Allhemp3 is a perfect weight for delicates knits as lace work and lightweight clothing. The Allhemp3 provides exceptional drape and is lovely and light-weight for warmer months or elegant wear all year round.
Why use hemp?
Hemp is environmentally friendly as hemp production needs no herbicides or pesticides, has low water requirements, produces 2 – 4 times more fibre per area than other sources and maintains a healthy microbial life in the soil. Hemp is naturally resistant to damp, mould, bacteria, moths and silverfish.
Tips to soften hemp:
Hemp will soften by regular washing and drying. It will not shrink, stretch, fade or pill, and will only get softer after each wash. If you find the Allhemp yarns stiff to work with, soak the 100% hemp hank in hot water and hair conditioner, air dry and wind into a ball. Knit away!
