A high quality, Romanian hemp yarn. We looked far and wide to locate this gorgeous hemp, and we just love it! It takes fiber reactive dyes beautifully, just treat it the same as you would cotton for any type of dye. White is achieved through environmentally friendly peroxide bleaching and yields a beautiful creamy white rather than a bright white.
✿ Not polished or waxed.
✿ Grown in an environmentally conscious manner in Romania, and is processed by mechanical methods rather than chemical processing.
✿ Not at all like traditional hemp you might find at the craft store. It is soft, like a cotton string, and will only become softer with wearing.
