Knitting with Hemp 


     INKnitters has a story on "Knitting with Hemp" by Donna Druchunas in their Fall 2004 issue.

     There is a lot of very good basic information in the story, though it is much less technical than the story "Fiber Basics: Hemp" by Janet Szabo in Spin Off magazine.

     There are many things that are covered in the very well illustrated four page layout. The headings in the story are: What is hemp?, Hemp is Controversial, Historical Uses for Hemp, From Seed to Yarn, Tips for knitting with hemp, and Caring for hemp garments. There is also a very nice pattern for a "Rainbow Hemp Scarf." One of the sources mentioned for hemp yarn is Lanaknits Designs.

     Lanaknits has a note on their web site about info on hemp yarn pack to "Knit a Traveler's Pocket" by Nancy Bush as featured in the July/August 2004 issue of Piecework magazine. The Traveler's Pocket is inspired by medieval Islamic, northern European, and Norwegian motifs, and Nancy Bush knitted this useful travel accessory.
