New Yarn – Hempwol

November 1, 2012

We are so excited to have new yarn in the store. When Baaad Anna’s first opened we carried BC-local Lanaknits Hemp for Knitting, it is a great sturdy yarn in fantastic colourways. We still carry the hemp luxury yarn, but now we also carry the Hempwol!  It is a beautiful yarn, 65% wool and 35% hemp, 100g and 229 meters. It has a beautiful rustic look to it, and knits up really well!

I did a store sample in the brown and red colourway. I knit the Oslo-Anorak pattern from the pickles website for Josh! It is an absolutely adorable pattern and looks fantastic in the Hempwol!  We have a great range of colours in the hempwol, next time you stop by the store, check it out!
