When Hemp for Knitting’s AllHemp6Lux yarn arrived I immediately fell in love, but couldn’t decide what to do with it. After almost a whole summer of searching, I realized that the perfect pattern was right under my nose!
The Cool Hemp Ponchette is a pattern written specifically with the drape and feel of a hemp yarn in mind. It feels light, even in this 90 degree heat! It’s perfect for throwing over a tank top for a weekend brunch, or as an easy cover-up in the evening. I’d even wear it over a long-sleeved t-shirt in the winter!
AllHemp6Lux is unlike any 100% hemp yarn I’ve seen. Most hemp yarns that need a few washings to soften up, but AllHemp6Lux is soft in the hank and soft on your hands. The colors are surprisingly luminous, which is great for summer. It’s definitely a luxurious yarn, but with the amazing durability of hemp. AllHemp6Lux will never pill, shrink, or fade.
