We have dyed these yarns in 21 of the bright, saturated colors you have come to expect from Lunatic Fringe Yarns.  These colors have been dyed specially for Lunatic Fringe Yarns by a dye house right here in the US.  We will be adding a few more colors to the color palette as the year goes on.  Bold hemp yarns are available in a creamy Bleached yarn, and Natural and Dark Natural.

The Lyte Hemp yarn comes in two sizes:  Bold and Fine.  Bold yarns which are shown on this page have approximately 2,600 yards per pound: Sett at 20-28 epi and beat at 20-28 ppi. The Lyte Bold combines beautifully with 10/2 or 8/2 cotton yarns.   Lyte Fine yarn has 5,000 yards per pound.  Click here to see the Lyte Fine yarns.  We recommend setting the Lyte Fine at 30-36 epi and the same for ppi.  The Lyte Fine yarn combines beautifully with 16/2 or 20/2 cotton yarns.  Both the Lyte Bold and Lyte Fine are strong enough to use for warp.

To minimize the exuberant tendencies of these yarns as you are weaving: soak your bobbins and pirns in water prior to use.  It doesn’t need to be a long soak (10 minutes or so is plenty…the bobbins will sink below the surface of the water as they get fully wet).  Then blot dry and weave your fabric.  This prevents the yarn from escaping from the bobbins.

Colors are dyed with Fiber Reactive dyes and are washfast.
