Today I began spinning the custom order for hemp yarn. Well, it spins pretty well and I am getting a nice consistant and thin thread. I haven’t decided yet whether to make a 2 ply yarn or to navajoy ply it into a 3 ply. I like the navajo ply so much, but I think I want to keep this yarn pretty thin.
One thing that I did do was blend the hemp with a bit of nylon to add strength and elasticity. If I were looking only for the strenth, I probably would have stayed with a vegetable fiber like Tencel to make it a truely vegan yarn.
