Hemp cord, hemp twine, or parcel string is great to crochet and knit with because it gives the hat a stiffness and comfort to the warmer weather. Hemp cord or twine is available at Walmart in the craft jewelry section.
As far as working with it, you will want to use your smaller crochet hook such as the K-10 1/2 or I-9.
Visit strawberrycouture.etsy.com and type in the search bar in my shop “hemp hats”. Look also for “hemp hat patterns”.

A customer asked me if she could see this Ombretta crochet cloche hat with flower on a real person. Luckily I had this one in stock and took selfies of it. This hat is made of black hemp twine. I did my best to pose at all angles. What do you think?
