WE'RE TAKING A BREAK

We want to let all of our customers know that our fabrics cutting team are taking a much-needed break from 26th May to 6th June. The final date to order cut fabrics and have them despatched before our break will be the 25th of May.

During our break from 26th May to 6th June, no cut fabrics orders will be despatched. Any fabric sold "by the metre" will be affected. You will still be able to order our expanded range with longer lengths of fabric off-cuts, webbing, strapping, edging and swatches for a timely despatch (usually 2 working days).

Although you are free to place your cut fabric order, please bear in mind that it will not be processed until 7th June at the earliest. Once the team return, refreshed and revitalised, we will begin cutting and despatching fabrics in date order.

All other products are unaffected, you will still be able to order foods, cbd, beauty, clothing, bags and other products during this time and have them despatched within the usual timeframe.

A luxurious black silken hemp fabric, that is a true delight! This Charmeuse Satin has a wonderful satin sheen on one side and a matt on the other. The strength of Hemp combined with the beauty and softness of silk means this fabric is probably the first silk fabric that can be used in upholstery and still hold its shape as well as making stunning clothes.

The perfect choice if you are looking for something fancy. The silk gives a beautiful shine on one side with a contrasting matte look on the other. Don’t be fooled by its delicate appearance, as with all hemp materials this fabric is resilient and can easily be used for a variety of needs from cushions to clothing. The white version of this fabric is our most popular wedding dress material.

This black silk fabric is made from a blend of 55% hemp and 45% silk, providing an environmentally friendly fabric for making evening dresses, luxury pyjamas, underwear, bedsheets, upholstery or home furnishings. If you're making a gown, frock or dress and want that silky shine and shimmer then this fabric is for you! Likewise, if you want to make a set of luxury bedsheets, pillowcases and duvet covers, this would be a great fit. There are so many possibilities!

The fabric has a good weight to it, with a semi-opaque/semi-transparent weave allowing light but not detailed shapes to pass through. On the scale of transparency to opaqueness, we would put this one at the top end of semi-opaque, much closer to opaque than transparent. If worn as clothing, you would not see skin through the fabric.

A few things to consider when buying our fabrics...

Shrinkage

Please note, natural fabrics will shrink when washed anywhere from 5%-12% depending upon the weave and composition. Always pre-wash first to desired temperature.

All natural fabrics will shrink unless they have been hammered by high temperature washes, treatments and finishes - all of that contributes to a larger footprint on our planet - at the hemp shop we never do that.

Priced by the metre

Priced per full metre length plus offers on 10m, 25m, 50m & 100m. For orders of 50m and above, please contact us for stock/delivery times.

Always order a swatch first

We always recommend checking with a new swatch before ordering, as the minimal treatment and organic cultivation methods may result in subtle changes in the hemp fibres from batch to batch. So the fabric you bought last year might be subtly different to the fabric you buy today.

Check for faults, imperfections or marks

Please check the fabric for any faults, imperfections or marks as soon as it arrives, as we are unable to accept returns of washed or cut fabric. Due to the minimal sustainable methods used during the production of the yarns, our fabrics are never intensively bleached, and as such they retain all of their natural character. Slubs and slight discolourations in hemp fabrics are not flaws, they are part and parcel of working with such pure and natural fibres.

Cut fabrics are non-refundable

Please note, that once sent, all cut fabrics are non-refundable so please order a swatch if uncertain.

Hemp fabric is...

Biodegradable, compostable and recyclable

Hemp is a natural plant fibre. It is 100% biodegradable and does not harm the environment in any way!

Thermodynamic

It keeps you warm when it’s cool and cool when it’s hot.

Antibacterial, antifungal and anti-allergen

Hemp naturally fights off bacteria and fungi such as mold, keeping your fabric smelling fresh. It's also hypoallergenic, making it a perfect choice for anyone with allergies to other natural fibres.

Breathable and insulating

Hemp’s hollow shafts mean it is breathable, and also insulating.

UV resistant

Hemp is the worlds only naturally UV resistant fabric, perfect for keeping the harmful rays of the sun from damaging your skin.

Durable

Hemp is an extremely durable, hard wearing fabric. 5x the tensile strength of cotton and 3x more durable. It also gets softer with age.

Absorbent

Hemp is a highly absorbent fabric, meaning it retains the colour and quality when dyed, much more than cotton or linen.

Strong structure

Hemp doesn’t lose shape easily and having an elastic fibre, results in less creasing when compared to some other natural fibres.
