Elsebeth Lavold Hempathy


From Elsebeth Lavold's Enchanted Garden: The drape and feel of Hempathy resembles that of linen but the cotton content provides softness and the Modal lends it some elasticity. This enhances the knitting properties and helps even out the knitting for us uneven knitters.

Just like Silky Wool, it knits up like a thicker yarn, but the finished garment feels thinner than the yarn would indicate. Many designs in Silky Wool can be knitted in Hempathy as well. Hemp, by the way, has anti-bacterial properties.

154 yards/50g skein. Blend of 41% cotton, 34% hemp, 25% modal with a gauge of 5.5 sts/in on size 5 (3.5 mm) needles.
