The Quest Continues

Hempmania – On one of my early morning searches for quality hemp, I stumbled upon Hempmania; a site that has been up and running since 1997. They offer quality hemp products and adhere to fair trade practices (sweet!). Ok, I’ll bite. So I ordered 4 spools of hemp yarn; blue, purple, forest green, and natural. I have only used the natural so far and was impressed with the finished look. There is a slight shine to it which really brings life to what is otherwise just fibrous cord. This is encouraging to use the other colors and see how polished they might look. What I’m not a huge fan of is that their yarn is SO fine, that I felt like I had giant hands palming the yarn because there wasn’t much to grip, lol! With hemp this fine, the fibers fray and fuzz if they get overworked. Overall, getting hemp supplies from Hempmania is worth it. However, I’m not ready to call it the Best Hemp on the Planet.

Next stop on my mission to find the best hemp on the planet is Ecolution. I have a feeling this is a major contender for the title. Everything from the way their product is harvested and processed to the end user results is enticing. Til next time, happy hemping!
