In Elsebeth Lavold’s Hempathy cotton, hemp and modal blend together to create a wonderfully breathable, slightly dappled yet clear-colored yarn that is both soft and strong. While the cotton provides softness, hemp imparts greater strength, durability and drape. Modal, a fiber synthesized from natural sources, also provides drape with greater elasticity, depth of color and softness than either cotton or hemp alone.
It is truly one of our all time favorite light weight yarns.
