8/2 Hemp & Organic Cotton (also known as 2/8) is a sustainable version of a weaving staple! It is perfect for weaving towels, clothing, and table linens. Hemp is a remarkable and under-used fibre. It is sustainable to grow and process, durable and strong. Its feel and hand are similar to linen, and like linen it gets softer and more supple the more you use it. In this yarn hemp is paired with organic cotton, which lends softness.
What we like about Hemp/Cotton:
- Beautiful natural fibre with subtle sheen
- Absorbent qualities excellent for towels
- Strong enough for warp
- Washes well and stands up to wear and tear
