Elsebeth Lavold Hempathy
Who would ever think that hemp could be such beautiful yarn? We like the durable and lightweight Hempathy for summer projects. You may find that knitting with this yarn is rough or stiff, but don't fret. This yarn gets better with each washing and will be sure to be one of your comfy favorites. This yarn, much like linen, softens each time it is washed.
Knit this yarn a little tighter than you would normally to allow for the expansion during blocking.
