Hemp yarn is more economical than linen, and the sustainable crop grows well in moderate soils, uses less water than cotton and produces a large amount of fiber per acre. Currently there is no US production of hemp yarn in the US because of Federal Regulations and a lack of industrial capabilities. We are working toward helping make the US hemp industry grow.
These bleached and natural (natural hemp color) yarns are made in Romania and are available on 400+g cones. These cones weigh at least 400g and may be as heavy as 500g. The natural color varies from year to year, so make sure you purchase enough yarn at one time to complete your project.
We do have colors available in our own 2 ply Firefly hemp yarn, and 3 ply hemp skeins from Lana Knits. We do have a color card for these yarns plus all the colored hemp yarns available on our color card page.
