100% Hemp has been used for some 10,000 years for items such as clothing, household goods, rope, paper and sailcloth. Hemp is environmentally friendly, three times stronger than cotton and anti-microbial. It produces an excellent hot weather fabric. Your hemp skeins will be a little stiff when they first arrive but give them a chance—your yarn will soften as you knit and get softer and softer every time you wash and dry it.
Lucci Yarns originally only sold to the garment maunfacturers, but has expanded into the personal knit and crochet market.
