DIY Knitting Kit Hemp Produce Sacks
- Store your produce sacks when carrying it in a bag,
- Or as a produce bag when buying unpacked nuts, seeds, legumes etc.,
- Or as a sprouting bag for seeds, beans etc.
It’s no coincidence that hemp bears the nickname weed. The hemp plant grows like a weed, it is naturally resistant to most pests, herbicides, fungicides and it is thriving on less water than most other crops. Amazingly it also returns 60-70% of the nutrients it takes from the soil, having a natural way to clean up soil pollution. Hemp can produce more fiber than cotton using the same amount of land. Hemp is one of the oldest fibers we know and our Hempyarn is made in Europe from European grown Hemp, which minimizes our carbon foodprints.
Hempyarn being this very strong and durable fiber and at the same time very thin, makes it a perfect yarn to use for produce sacks taking up very little space and being very lightweight – easy to always carry with you in your bag as a good alternative to a plastic bag.
To minimize our use of packaging this DIY kit comes in a handmade Hemp fabric bag and is shipped in a handmade compostable envelope of recycled paper closed with GOTS organic cotton.
The handmade hemp fabric bag can be used:
The DIY kit consists of:
3 handspun yarn balls of 3-thread Hemp thread
3 cut off Hempcords to use as the ribbon when closing the sacks
3 Wrapped in Nature etiquettes, made of GOTS organic cotton
1 bag handmade of Hemp fabric
1 pattern available in English, Danish and Spanish. Please ask for other languages, we might be working on them!
