THE HOME OF HEMP BLAZING THE ECO TRAIL SINCE 1995
A superior quality fine Hemp in a linen style from Romania. Wonderfully light and soft, using compressed air blasts to soften the fabric rather than any synthetic bleaches which leaves the inherant beauty and uniquely rich character of natural, long fibre hemp. The fabric colour is an eco-sensitive un-bleached natural.
"Fine hemp linen is a quality medium weight linen with good drape and a soft hand. It's a really versatile fabric for garment making and would be beautiful sewn up into shirts, dresses, trousers, shorts or summer weight blazers. The natural colour is a neutral that will pair with everything in your wardrobe but, being a natural fabric, could also be dyed to your preference."- Manju, sewmanju.com

A wonderfully natural fabric that has had minimal treatment. As a result, the beauty of the hemp is allowed to shine through, with the natural hemp colour as if it came direct from the fields. Using sustainable methods, we eliminate the use of harmful chemicals which could leave residues in finished products that are absorbed through our skin or lungs.
The fibres are spun, milled, woven, dyed and finished without toxic chemicals and without using huge amounts of fresh water. This mill produces the Hemp fabrics from organic yarn, which, although not certified, is grown/cultivated, produced and spun, organically.
This sustainable fabric is perfect for making all kinds of clothing, or for using as an upholstery fabric, as good for making curtains as it is for making shirts. Highly versatile, and one of our favourite eco-friendly fabrics!

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 per full metre length plus offers on 10m, 25m, 50m & 100m. For orders of 50m and above, please contact us for stock/delivery times.
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.
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.
Hemp is a natural plant fibre. It is 100% biodegradable and does not harm the environment in any way!
It keeps you warm when it’s cool and cool when it’s hot.
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.
Hemp’s hollow shafts mean it is breathable, and also insulating.
Hemp is the worlds only naturally UV resistant fabric, perfect for keeping the harmful rays of the sun from damaging your skin.
Hemp is an extremely durable, hard wearing fabric. 5x the tensile strength of cotton and 3x more durable. It also gets softer with age.
Hemp is a highly absorbent fabric, meaning it retains the colour and quality when dyed, much more than cotton or linen.
Hemp doesn’t lose shape easily and having an elastic fibre, results in less creasing when compared to some other natural fibres.
