New Yarn: Rowan Hemp Tweed
This is the season for tweeds, and Rowan’s new Fall collection includes this gorgeous 75% wool/25% hemp blend that is soft and airy. Wool and hemp create ‘breathable’ knitted fabrics which are cool to wear in warm weather and warm in colder temperatures.
Hemp fibre is resistant to stretching so does not distort with use and naturally softens with wear – hemp does not wear out it wears in!
I love the colours of this new Fall line.
And at $8.95/50g it can make a very affordable post-holiday gift-to-self sweater that is now in my queue!
