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. Paradise Fibers Hemp Roving in it's beautiful, natural color is de-gummed, high quality roving. 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!
