I've been looking around the internet, as my LYS doesn't carry hemp yarn, and I can really only find Lanaknits (http://www.hempforknitting.com/). I was wondering if anyone knew of any other places I can find 100% hemp yarn.

I was just looking at hemp yarn the other day.
I haven't had a chance to go through them all, but these links either sell it and I think the livejournal link there was a bit of a discussion about it.

Otherwise, a google search of hemp yarn will produce quite a number of resources. :)

I jsut wanted to add that Elsebeth Lavold's Hempathy (Hemp/Cotton/Modal) is a very nice yarn, pretty affordable, and not hard to find. :D
