Tow Hemp Yarn

$20.00

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.

Tow hemp can be spun from fibers that are nearly as long as line flax or very short approaching cotton. Tow yarns can have more “character” in the form of slubs and other imperfections.  Hemp fabric is crisp but will soften with each washing.

This 100% hemp yarn came to us as a mill end, so we cannot be positive of it’s origin, but it is a similar yarn to other tow hemp yarns to come from China.  We have a limited supply of this yarn, and when it runs out, we do not know if we can purchase any more.

Sold on 1 lb cones.  10N/2 denier.  Approximately 2,650 yards per pound.
