Organic Merino Hemp
Equal parts rustic and refined, this non-superwash 2-ply organic yarn has a light, airy hand with a slightly crisp feel. The beautiful heathered effect is created by the hemp in this blend which does not accept the dye used for wool.
Each skein is hand-dyed, by yours truly, at the optimal temperature/pH required to preserve the integrity of this magical fiber blend. Dyed with earth-friendly, low-impact acid dyes that meet organic standards and are formulated without hazardous metals or chrome.
Fiber Content: 70% Fine Organic GOTS Merino Wool, 30% Organic Hemp
Yardage: 328 yards (300m)
Wand Size: 3 – 6 US Needle or D – G Hook (3.25 – 4mm)
Care: Hand-wash in cool water with minimal agitation. Dry flat.
Due to the kettle-dyed nature of this yarn, look forward to tonal color pooling and striping of varying subtlety. Alternate skeins for a more blended, less whimsical fabric.
