Natural plant based yarn - choose hemp.

Great reasons to choose hemp.

Hemp is one of the oldest fibres in the world and was one of the first to be 
cultivated by human beings around 10,000 years ago, primarily for medicinal purposes. 

From the strongest rope and finest lace, to our own luxurious yarns, hemp is the most versatile fibre and can be found in over 5,000 products on the market today!


It is similar to linen in its texture and is easily combined with other natural fibres making it durable and soft, such as hempton our cotton-hemp-modal blend and hempwol our wool-hemp blend. Hemp requires no pesticides or herbicides, it returns 60%-70% of the nutrients it takes back to the soil and uses up to four times less water than other fibres - making it one of the most eco-friendly fibres to produce. Hemp requires no pesticides, no large amount of land, and not much water to grow.
