Back in July, I got some different fibers to play with on the spinning wheel. Sometime last month, I finished spinning up the two or so ounces of hemp.
Let’s just say I’m not a fan.
The fiber felt a bit greasy and looked very coarse. I had a bowl of water nearby for dipping my fingers as I spun, which helped. It’s softer than it looks (this is a very relative term here), and I hear that, like linen, it’ll soften with washing and wearing. I’m thinking this bit will do well as washcloths.
