Jute yarn, great for indoors and outdoors!

Jute yarn, great for indoors and outdoors!
Jute yarn is a sustainable and nice alternative for indoor and outdoor projects. With this durable yarn you can crochet a rustic rug, knit a sturdy garden cushion or knot a beautiful macrame plant hanger, among other things. In this blog we tell you why we love this fair-trade yarn! 

Jute yarn is made from sturdy 100% vegetable fibres and offers a wide range of crafty possibilities for indoor and outdoor projects. Its natural properties ensure a fully biodegradable final product. The handling of Jute can be a bit rough, compared to soft cotton yarn, but this fibre creates wonderful and durable projects that hold their shape very well. Ideal for baskets and floor mats.

The Hoooked Jute collection is fair trade and is available in a range of six toxic-free pastel colours. Hoooked 100% Natural Jute yarn from the Amazons is made without the use of fertilizer or pesticides by a BCS certified sustainable family-owned company in Brazil.
