Looking for an eco-friendly gift? Then you can't go wrong with hemp wash cloths. Not only does the hemp yarn support people in Nepal, it also has enough yardage for you to make approximately 3 wash cloths. They look great wrapped around a nice bar of soap. A ball of hemp also makes a great gift for knitters, crocheters or the adventurous weaver or rug hooker. #themarinersdaughter #giftideas #handknit #crochet #hemp #nepal #fairtrade
