It’s my first time giving hemp a try. I broke into the 2 ounce package I picked up at Madrona last year.
I kind of like it…
I did a little reading on hemp spinning. Spinning it worsted seems to be the best way to go and spinning it damp or wetting your fingers as you spin makes for a stronger yarn, though spinning it dry makes for a fluffier yarn.
I’m spinning it fairly thin and will keep it as a single.
I sort of like it…
I may prefer wearing hemp or knitting hemp yarn to spinning hemp fiber. I’ll continue through my 2 ounces and see how I feel about it. I just may prefer the the feel of a protein fiber. Maybe I’ll try a hemp blend next time.
Have you spun hemp? Any suggestions?
On the hand knitting front, I’ve added an inch or so to it since last time.
Nothing new to report on the machine knitting front.
Thanks for reading this far.
