A beautiful collection of four 25g ball of textured hemp string in fiery colours. It contains one ball each of raspberry, orange, mustard yellow and rainbow stripe. The hemp has been grown, harvested, spun and dyed in rural Nepal providing income for people living in these areas. Hemp is a sustainable product. It grows wild in Nepal and is also used as a rotation crop to replenish nutrients in the soil. Its fully biodegradable.
It has a beautiful uneven texture highlighting its handmade nature. These variations in thickness along the length of the string and also the occasional knot to join lengths are part and parcel of this.
I often use it to add colourful accents to my macrame and for tying parcels. It can be used for many other things including: jewellery making, gift wrapping, friendship bracelets, crochet and weaving, as well as everyday household string and garden twine.
