Excellent weaving yarn (warp or weft) for dish towels, place mats, tablecloths, clothing etc. Washes easily. Hemp yarn softens upon repeated washings.

Hemp fiber obtained from the bast of the Cannabis sativa plant has been used for some 10,000 years for items such as clothing, rope, paper, sailcloth, everything from clothing  and other household goods.  The use of hemp cord in pottery has been documented in modern day Taiwan dating back to 8,000 B.C.  Hemp belongs to the bast fiber family that also includes flax, jute, ramie, nettle and kenaf.  All bast fibers will be a bit stiff at first, but become progressively softer after only 3-4 washings.

Hemp is environmentally friendly in many ways. Hemp grows well without the need for chemicals which makes it an ideal alternative to cotton.  In addition, hemp has a deep root system that helps to prevent soil erosion and aerates the soil to the benefit of future crops. Hemp is an extremely eco-friendly resource.
