Hempathy is a beloved yarn. Hemp is an incredible plant fiber that is valued for its strength and durability. It won’t wear out – instead, it will wear in – getting better with age. It will retain color better than any other fiber, including cotton, due to its porous nature which also allows the fibre to breathe. Blended with cotton and modal, Elsebeth Lavold designed Hempathy is a slightly textured durable yarn dyed in a range of tonal colors. The drape and feel of Hempathy will remind you of linen while the cotton gives it softness. Perfect for stylish spring and summer knits.
Machine wash cold, dry flat. Hempathy blooms nicely when washed so swatching is essential.
