I've been thinking of using hemp for a project and doing some reading up on in. I've got these 2 books from the library - Amy Singer's "No Sheep for You" and Clara Parkes "The Knitter's book of Yarn."
They both have info about hemp, and one of them said not to wind it in a center pull ball. The reason a center pull ball works so well with wool is that it wants to stick to itself so it keeps it from falling apart. With non-wool yarns, it will just fall apart and tangle. She said to just wind a ball and knit from the outside.
Mirl56 at Ravelry, too.
