Hemp fiber conducts heat, dyes well, resists mildew, blocks ultraviolet light and has natural anti-bacterial properties. Shorter, woody core fibers ("tow") contain higher levels of lignin.

Although coarser than most fiber, hemp top can be used and mixed in with softer fiber to give it texture. Great for any spinning, blending, or craft project! Hemp is an Eco friendly plant fiber than can either be dyed or left natural and be spun wet or dry. Spinning it wet will result in a softer yarn.
