"Hempathy" is a great blend of cotton, hemp and modal. Two different strands plied together give this yarn a slight textured look and the hint of sheen adds a little reflectivity. The softness of cotton, the elasticity of modal, and the drape of hemp combine to make this the perfect yarn for summer sweaters and accessories!
