Rowan Hemp Tweed is a modern take on a tweed knitting yarn. This Aran weight yarn is strong and durable with a natural lustre, and will knit to all past Rowan Aran patterns. The blend of wool and hemp produces knitted fabrics which are “breathable”, cool in warm weather and warmin cool temperatures making them ideal for outdoor wear. Hemp fibre is naturally more suitable to people with chemical sensitivities. The yarn is machine washable on a gentle cool cycle.
