- Hoooked Jute -

When you crochet in super bulky/chunky yarn it definitely counts as a work out! Especially when you work with Hoooked Jute Yarn. This coarse natural material is anything but compliant. Still I am a huge advocate for this as it makes wonderful home decor items.

Downsides of Hoooked Jute Yarn:

It is not compliant
If this will be your first time working with jute, you might be surprised about the texture of it. It is not soft and I did get a blister from working with it. You can come across balls of thin jute, which is easier to work with. However for smaller projects this super bulky/chunky yarn is definitely still doable.
shedding
It sheds A LOT! This can be a nuisance, and it is challenging to deal with the problem in the middle of a project. Being prepared for the mess can help. One thing you can do is to cover your lap with a cloth, as you crochet. This way at least the fibers are contained. Once you finish your project a quick sweep with a lint roller, brush or even a vacuum cleaner will remove the remaining fibers from your clothes, sofa and/or floor.

Upsides of Hoooked Jute Yarn:

Beautiful textured strand of yarn
The sturdiness of each strand of jute turned into one thick rope really adds texture and somehow power to this yarn. Add this with the beautiful colour range and you truly have a wonderful material for your projects.
Good for the environment

Jute is a sturdy 100% vegetable fiber and Hoooked Jute yarn from the Amazons is made without the use of fertilizer or pesticides by a BCS certified sustainable family-owned company in Brazil. On top of that it is also a Fair Trade product.
Its natural properties ensure a fully biodegradable final product.
