Default Hemp yarns?

Has anyone used the hemp yarns at lanaknit.com? I'd like to try them
but wondered what others thought of them.

No I have not bought hemp yarns, but I have worked with it and I love
hemp. I also have several t-shirts made out of hemp/cotton blend and love
these as well. After washing they become soft and great to wear.

Sorry, this does not help you at all does it....LOL

Actually it does, since I'm always looking to find interesting hemp yarn
combinations; I made DH & me hemp/wool blend socks and they seem to wear
very well. Thanks!

Yes they do, one of our Guild members loves spinning hemp and she often
blends it with other fibers. What I have seen of her handspun/handknitted
socks, is that they are all lovely soft.
