Natural Hemp Fibre
Hemp is a fast-growing crop that is becoming more popular due to its sustainability credentials. Hemp fibre is a great option for spinning on its own or blending with other fibres. Ada Fibres hemp fibre is a bast fibre meaning that the fibre has been obtained through a retting process similar to flax.
Flax by its nature has strength and a natural texture that can at first feel stiff but breaks in with use. Hemp fibre is dense in hand and this sliver measures 10g/m. The Ada Fibre hemp is prepared, ready to spin and available in 100g bags.
