Hemp placemats made from 6-ply naturally colored hemp yarn. You can decide how embellished you want to make the mats. We include instructions for multiple types of hand-manipulated weaves to use as edges on your mats. All instructions require only 2 shafts. Perfect for your rigid heddle loom.
The 6 ply hemp yarn is produced in Romania. It is line spun and has a nice sheen to it when you press the woven items. A mangle really gives it a nice surface. Hems are woven with 3 ply hemp from China.
