Elsebeth Lavold Hempathy Yarn - 28 Blue Pine Green Detailed Description

Elsebeth Lavold Hempathy Yarn - 28 Blue Pine Green
28 Blue Pine Green shown $7.95
This durable, lightweight hemp blend is ideal not only for summer tops and skirts, but also works well for market bags, scarves and lacy hats! Some knitters and crocheters may find that Hempathy feels a bit rough or stiff to work with, but this yarn, much like linen, softens each time it is washed. Like your favorite blue jeans, the resulting fabric is one that only gets better with age! Hempathy does bloom and we recommend compensating for a little negative ease when planning projects using this yarn as the cotton content allows it to stretch a bit.
