Lanaknits Allhemp3 hemp yarn is the fingering weight version of the popular Allhemp6. Versatile and durable hemp is an ecological alternative to wool, cotton and synthetic yarns. It blocks 90 % of the sun's UV rays making it a perfect choice for summer knits. Hardwearing and machine washable/dryeable hemp softens after washes and holds its shape well. The knitted fabric is smooth and drapey and makes beautiful summer shawls, tops and garments. As always, we recommend swatching and washing the swatch to see how the knitted fabric behaves when washed.
You need 100-200 grams for a regular shawl and approx. 400 g for a medium-sized women's cardigan. Check the popular Flaming June in Knitty!
