Can't get enough of the original Natural single ply nettle and hemp yarn? I hear ya! Sometimes I like to just knit up a quick washcloth or two or three. You can slap this yarn on size 8 needles (it's a worsted weight) and you can make so many cool things from it. Each ball has 85 yards in it too.
Let's not stop at washcloths, think handles for bags (because it does break in and get softer over time), and market bags! Make outdoor seat cushion covers or table cloths! Or project bags for your Projects with animal fiber. Why? Because Nettle is a natural Moth repellent! Oh yes!
Have you tried Hemp yarn before? If not, go ahead and get some now!
Darn Good Yarn's Nettle and Hemp yarns have 100 yards each to the ball.
This yarn has wonderful natural tones! Since our Nettle and Hemp yarns are not dyed in any way the yarn has natural color variations in it, that gives it wonderful depth.

Nettle and Hemp are both wonderful renewable resources! These yarns make great gifts for the vegan crafter in your live! Just think! Finally there is something else besides cotton for people with allergies to animal fibers!! How thrilling if you were stuck with only a choice of cotton or acrylic!
Both the Nettle and the Hemp yarn can be tossed in the washer and dryer! Super easy to take care of! This yarn will not only hold your interest while working with it. Your finished projects become softer the more you wash them! You will fall in love with your Nettle or Hemp yarn projects over and over again! Our Nettle and Hemp yarns are 100% organic!
