The Strength of Hemp

So, hemp...what a material! In the pic above you can see on top a washcloth I made for myself like 10 years ago! I knit the center, crocheted a shell border around it, & have used & washed it for years! It's starting to fall apart, so I took it out the other day to mend it. At the same time I've been working on a new crocheted hemp project. You can see it under the wash cloth. I wonder what it will look like in 10 years? One thing to keep in mind tho' is that it is very scratchy to work with...much more so than yarn. But for the length of time you can use your end product, it sure seems worth a little difficulty in the making!
