Elsebeth Lavold introduces the truly wonderful new yarn Hempathy. Hemp is an incredible plant fiber that is valued for its strength and durability. Hemp won"t wear out, rather it will wear in - getting better with age. Hemp, by the way, has anti-bacterial properties. The drape and feel resembles that of linen, but the cotton content provides softness and Modal lends it some elasticity. This enhances the knitting properties, and helps even out the knitting for uneven knitters.Elsebeth Lavold makes great use of it"s fantastic stitch definition in her "The Enchanted Garden Collection".
