Five stars for this Paton's Hempster yarn. This yarn works up well in crochet with no splitting. It flows easily over a bamboo hook. Stitch definition is very good. Colors are vibrant. This is not a soft yarn but a strong yarn. Excellent for home decor, accessories, tote bags and baskets. There is no stretchiness to this yarn. It may work well for Amigurumi as it will not stretch out. Will definitely buy again, would recommend.
This yarn feels great to knit with, it’s not soft in a slippery way but it’s not hard on the hands either and I can tell it is going soften up beautifully with wash and wear. I also greatly appreciate finding a plant based yarn that isn’t prone to splitting, a total pleasure!
This is a sturdy yarn great for totes. It is not overly soft but has great colors and would be useful for any project where you need strength.
This yarn is an amazing price for a natural fibre yarn. The yarn it's self is good. Its pretty soft for a cotton, but Lion Brand 24/7 is definitely much softer. The only not great thing about the yarn is that it splits easily. This could be very frustrating depending on your skill level and project.
