Lang Canapa DK Pure Hemp Yarn
DK Pure Hemp Yarn
Spun from hemp fiber, Lang's Canapa is an exceptional exclusive for hand knitting. Hemp is amongst the oldest of the useful and ornamental plants on earth. So it is even more exciting to make a link to fashion and create a summery, cool natural fibre yarn. A special dye technique is used to give a slightly color-washed look.
Hemp fibre has been used for more than 6,000 years, and is a bio fibre par excellence. It grows in any latitude under varied climatic conditions and in different heights. During it's growth the plant needs neither watering, fertilizers or pesticides. Amazing!
As a hollow fibre, Hemp has a cooling effect in summer and warming in winter. Clothes made of Hemp offer antibacterial and fungicidal properties, are able to absorb body moisture and reflect both UVB and UVA rays. They shield against electrostatic fields, and are non-irritating as they are antiallergic. Hemp clothing keeps bacteria away from our body for being antiseptic as well.
