Washing experience:

Washing was fine, no bleeding although it is a light colour so I wouldn’t have expected any bleeding. The fabric did not stiffen up noticably after washing which is good.

Other Thoughts :

This is not a super soft yarn, it won’t make you a lovely snuggly jumper. But it could make good dishcloths, a summer shawl, something like that.

There is something super duper funky going on with this ball band! I will show you a comparison of a hemp yarn that I bought from one of their previous releases. The only thing that has changed is their definition of the weight as a fine 2. But they have not changed the meterage or the needle size or anything!

Unfortunately I cut this out and stuck it in my knitting journal before I rememberd to take a photo of it.

This is the old one, the forest green and as you can see the label information is the same except that they have changed it from medium 4 to fine 2. This is very strange because a fine 2 would be 250-300 m per 100g and this is 185m per 100g. I have actually emailed them about this because I have noticed that on a lot of their labels their grist (metres per 100g) and yarns weights (e.g fine 2) make no sense and are all over the place.

I hope that you found this review useful. If you have any suggestions about other things you would have wanted to know about the yarn please let me know in the comments below and of course if you have any questions please do let me know too.

Keep Crafty!
