Organic merino and hemp – meet the Hanfwerk yarn

It was love at first touch between me and this new yarn.

Hanfwerk is a yarn composed by 90% organic merino and 10% hemp. Each skein of 50g holds 150 meters (165 yds) of subtly nuanced yarn.

The stitch definition is glorious in both knitting and crochet. I got the manufacturer’s knitting gauge of 24 sts to 10 cm (4″) on a 3 mm needle. In crochet, a 4 mm hook is perfect.

Currently available in three soft neutral hues, there are more colours to come – if you like it, of course!

Get to know the Hanfwerk yarn in organic merino and hemp in the shop!

New international shipping option

I am very happy to be able to offer a new, much more affordable international shipping option: Delivengo.

This option is available for shipping outside France up to 2 kg. It will work for most yarn orders, but might not be available for heavy books.

As always, I apply a standard shipping fee to your orders, so you know beforehand how much shipping will cost. For shipping with Delivengo, this fee is:

– 7.80€ for destinations within the EU (outside France)
– 8.50€ for Switzerland and countries outside the EU

If you have any questions regarding shipping and shipping fees, feel free to send me an email.

Delivengo is trackable, but the packet will be left in your mailbox or at your door, without signature. If you want a delivery with signature, please choose La Poste (French postal services).
