Handspun Hemp Bobbins Large


A lovely textural, natural hemp twine on a rustic old-school wooden bobbin.

We love this bobbin on hand for quick tie jobs in the kitchen, gift tags and wrap. Endless possibilities for natural craft projects, crochet, weaving and textile crafts.

Unbleached, 100% natural hemp, approx 1-2mm diameter.

Bobbin measures 10cm tall and 8.5cm diameter, containing 1/2 a hank, approx 50g, of twine.

Relied upon for thousands of years, hemp fibre is one of the strongest and most durable of all natural textiles and is an environmentally-friendly crop.

Fair trade handmade in India.

Small scale handcrafts from JP Handloom, working for the betterment of spinning and weaving women in small villages in India. Maintaining fair trade work conditions and living wages allowing craftswomen to access health care and education for their children.

About Hemp:

An extremely fast growing crop, hemp produces more fibre yield per acre than any other source. Added to this environmental benefit, hemp leaves the soil in excellent condition for any succeeding crop. Roots anchor and protect the soil from runoff, building and preserving topsoil and subsoil structures similar to those of forests. Plants shed their leaves all through the growing season, adding rich organic matter to the topsoil and helping it retain moisture. Farmers have reported excellent hemp growth on land that had been cultivated steadily for nearly 100 years.
