The fibre is botanically dyed using black beans, and is called "iced mint". It is a lovely pale greyish blue, with a hint of green, almost like faded denim. This 50g braid of hemp fibre is quite different to our other silky, lustrous plant fibres. It feels much coarser and is more similar to flax, but as with linen yarns it will soften up over time and create something much softer than you might initially think. The hemp fibres are quite short and tricky to draft, this fibre is recommended for more advanced crafters, unless you are up for a challenge! This fibre is great for spinning and also for needle felting.
