Fair Trade Yarns
Hemp & Nettle Yarns
100% Hemp, Handspun
Hemp yarns have been used for centuries in Nepal. Hemp is woven, crocheted, and knitted into many different types of items–everything from clothing and ceremonial accessories to fishing nets and bags.
Our yarns are completely natural, made without the use of chemicals or machines. The hemp is cultivated in remote mountainous areas, and the fibers are processed and spun by hand in villages in Nepal. The resulting yarn has a natural and rustic appeal.
Like linen, it will soften with wear. Use as a carry-along yarn with Recycled Silk, knit or crochet it into bags or face cloths, or use for macrame.
Note: Most balls will contain some hand-tied breaks.
