Cascade Yarns strive to provide the highest quality yarns at affordable prices, and we’re so pleased to now bring the Cascade range to our Loopine family!
Eco + Hemp is a lovely all-seasons yarn. Sport weight is such a great garment weight as it’s right in between a 4ply and an 8ply, and this hemp blend softens nicely over time and can be used for lightweight warm-weather garments and layering pieces!
From the hard-working team at Cascade:
Eco+ Hemp is a blend of 80% Natural Peruvian wool and 20% hemp. Together, they create a soft durable yarn.
Hemp’s long fibers offer a multitude of benefits:
- dries well
- has natural anti-bacterial properties
- softens with use
- retains a garment’s structure and shape
This collection combines the earth tone palette of our Ecological Wool® and the signature solid color vibrancy of our Eco+ line of yarns.
