Sorry, but specific product you requested is not currently available. Hopefully you can find another option below.
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.

I don't know how someone could say splitty. I have made a dress and 3 tops and two purses and love hempathy. Stick in wash and dryer and soooooo durable and holds shape and gets softer over time. One purse was yarn held double in a lace pattern, and does NOT split

I got this to make the Camisoul from the Awareknits book. I love the color. Started knitting with it, and it started splitting as I was casting on so then it looks like two strands. It makes it a little difficult for me to work with. Will have to see how the finished project works out.

LOVE this yarn! Very machine wash and dryable. In fact it gets softer and drapes more with every washing.Have not shrunk anything either. Beautiful colors.
