Elsebeth Lavold Hempathy is a beautiful yarn for summer knitting. Hemp fibre has incredible strength and durability, and softens wonderfully with wear. The drape and feel resembles that of linen.
Hemp is blended with cotton for softness and Modal for elasticity in this durable, easy-care yarn.
Great for kids' clothing, too!
Hempathy blooms with washing, so thorough swatching is strongly advised when working patterns with this yarn.
