Satisfyingly crisp, Java is a 100% Hemp fiber yarn. Used for thousands of years, Hemp's closest relative is linen. Hemp was used by Betsy Ross to create the first American Flag as well as Levi Strauss to create the canvas fabric for the first pair of jeans. Hemp is one of the strongest and most durable natural fibers. It's naturally resistant to mold and ultraviolet light. This super absorbent fiber is great for knitting washcloths and other home accessories.
