    Elsebeth Lavold Hempathy

    Hemp is an incredible plant fiber that is valued for its strength and durability. It won’t wear out - instead, it will wear in - getting better with age. It will retain color better than any other fiber, including cotton, due to its porous nature which also allows the fiber to breathe. Blended with cotton and modal, Elsebeth Lavold Hempathy is a slightly textured yarn that is a WEBS favorite. Made in Italy.

      Have made a couple of top-down summer sweaters with this lovely drapey yarn: Heliotropic Pullover by Mercedes Tarasovich-Clark and Buttercup by Heidi Kirrmaier. Lovely yarn for both patterns. Knits quickly and the resulting drape is hard to beat. Only con would be repeated knots per skein. Didn't experience that in every skein, but the last four of the 16 skeins purchased.

      I am using this yarn to knit Heidi Kirmaier's "Buttercup". I like the pattern, but the yarn does show some uneven stitches in my knitting. It is also very "splitty" so I have to watch my stitches as I am knitting. I do like the texture of the yarn.

      Comments about Elsebeth Lavold Hempathy:

      i love this yarn. very soft, easy to work with, made a gorgeous shrug for my granddaughter. such a pretty color, called summer blue. I love the fibers, am a great supporter of hemp products.The only con was that it is a lighter weight yarn and so i needed to use a smaller hook and a little more work. i highly reccomend Hempathy yarn.

            I purchased Hempathy yarn to make a nice summer scarf. I love the classy look of it, it's not harsh on my hands to knit with and it works up nicely. I ordered white and was skeptical that it may get dirty in transit, but Webs had it package in a plastic bag inside the postal package. The yarn looks great.

                  I have knit several Heidi Kirmaier's Buttercup tops.
                  Wonderful yarn for all summer garment, they feel cooler than a cotton T-shirt.

                        I thought this fiber would be hard on the hands to work with, but it is softer than it looks and I loved working with it. It has a gorgeous texture and the colors are very saturated and beautiful. It is soft while having an interesting texture that looks linen-like, but readily softens with time and handling. I will definitely be purchasing it again, as it is definitely a new favorite.
