Just Hemp Yarn from Lion Brand fits all temps! This yarn is 100% hemp, which feels cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Like linen and other plant fibers, hemp works up into a durable fabric with wonderful drape. The yarn will soften as you stitch with it and get even softer with every wash, dry, and wear!

Plant fibers, like hemp, don’t have the same structure as animal or synthetic fibers and tend to split or untwist a bit easier as a result. We recommend working with a blunt-tipped needle or hook and making sure that you’re wrapping the strand in the same direction as the twist in the yarn – that will help keep the twist going in the same direction and encourage the individual strands to stick together.

Create beautiful projects like skirts and sweaters, washcloths and bags, and even blankets. The CYC 5 weight yarn comes in a sophisticated palette of 14 muted colors.

Review Summary:

It was perfect yarn I just love working with it. Makes the toughest purses The only thing that is slightly troublesome is that the yarn tends to easily split.

Just Hemp is great for home projects like plant hangers, coasters/placemats, dish clothes & towels, and it’s strength makes it great for bags and totes as well. It softens greatly after the first wash, so it would be drapey enough for summer tops and shawls as well!

Michael’s‘ have a great deal on the 3-pack.

Just Hemp Yarn | Lion Brand I like the colors and the feel of the yarn. However, it is extremely difficult to work with as it kept splitting. I am sorry to say that I haven't worked with a yarn this difficult and won't be ordering it again unless improvements to it are made.
