Rose Hip Island Merino Hemp DK is a nice and soft yarn with a tweedy look due to the dye taking to the merino but leaving the hemp undyed. It is suitable for accessories and garments.

Hanna says: "I thought the yarn took the dye in an interesting way, the superwash merino takes the dye really well while the hemp is left undyed. It creates a really beautiful tweedy look to the yarn. When you knit it up it has nice texture and depth. The thing that surprised me most about the yarn was how soft and squishy it was once washed. The hemp adds texture and interest to the yarn but it doesn't take away from the softness of the merino."
