Hemp Weaving


Done! And just in time to drive out to see my supplier who will be receiving my first viable hemp scarf made from his materials. I love working with hemp. I have no idea how much it will shrink or change after a washing! I’m putting the red silk on next, but I can’t wait to get home and throw on another hemp warp.

The first scarf is 100% hemp yarns (10/2Nm). I used my lightly hand dyed green hemp yarn for the weft.

This second scarf alternated between hemp and silk in the weft. This scarf is destined for California to a very patient friend!
