Hemp and cotton blend for strength and durability. This is not a soft yarn but a strong yarn. Great for home decor, accessories, baskets or bags. Works well with bamboo crochet hoots. No snagging or splitting of the yarn when working up the project. Colours are vibrant. Would recommend, will buy again.
This is the first time I've really done crafts with yarn, and this hasn't been any trouble for me at all. I love the colour and it has a nice texture. I've rated it 4 stars because I don't have much to compare it to! XD
I purchased this yarn earlier this year for some projects (knit purse or knit floor mat). This did not work out for me but not because of the yarn. The colour is vivid and the yarn easy to work with. The texture (unwashed) seems to have more body than the cotton handicraft yarn. The processing and delivery for this order was outstanding!
Looking forward to using this yarn for market bags.
