50% Hemp (bast) / 50% Long Staple Cotton

This is a stunning thick and textured natural fibre yarn that will bring a warmth and rustic feel to your project.  The bast hemp fibre provides grip and the long-staple cotton softness, this yarn has a softer feel than most hemp yarns and the long-staple fibre lengths reduce the 'pickle' effect.  

Dye this yarn using fibre reactive dyes.
