Tow Hemp Yarn

July 27, 2020

Hemp is a sustainable and environmentally friendly yarn.  Use this 2 ply tow hemp yarn to weave a multitude of handwoven items:  for example hand towels, bath towels with a spa feel or blankets.  Tow yarn is spun from the shorter fibers created during the milling process of line spun yarn.  As a result of using the shorter fibers, the yarn is softer and fuzzier. This yarn is a 10N/2 Natural Color yarn, with approximately 2,650 yards per pound. Sold on 1 lb cones.
