  • Natissea Pernelle – 100% European Hemp Yarn

    Baby Blue
    Forest Green
    Gray Blue

    Pernelle is a 100% European hemp yarn, perfect for lightweight spring and summer garments and shawls.

    The hemp fibers used in Pernelle are grown in Romania, where they are harvested and, after they've gone through various stages of retting, drying and scutching, wet-spun. The entire production process is done by a small family-run mill - something that we love to support.

    After spinning, the hemp yarn is transported to Northern France where it is dyed in a GOTS-certified dye house. The stunning color range with options for everyone, no matter whether you love neutrals, gentle pastels or glowy jewel tones, is one of the best I've ever seen!

    Pernelle knits up like a fingering-weight yarn – its yardage is slightly lower with 190 meters / 207 yards per 100g, but as it's a plant yarn, it won't bloom a lot after blocking. You can knit it at quite a few different gauges, depending on how drapey you'd like your fabric!

    The best part? Hemp, like linen, only gets softer with wear – and with being washed in the washing machine! The yarn is completely non-superwash, but as it's a plant yarn, you can throw it into your washing machine without any concerns.

    Please note: All colors showing up as "preorder" have a turnaround time of 3 - 4 weeks. If you order something as a preorder, all items purchased alongside the preorder will ship with the preorder.
