Rowan Hemp Tweed was introduced in 2015 and was a big hit at our Rowan yarn tasting party. A blend of 75% wool and 25 % hemp, it will be great year round for a sweater. It is cool in the warm weather and warm in the cool weather…perfect! The hemp softens with washing and wear and doesn’t stretch like cotton. Each 50 gm ball has 95 yards and knits to a worsted weight gauge. Great colour selection as well!
