This classic French Terry - one of our most popular fabrics - is perfect for making dressing gowns, sweatshirts, babies clothing and more. It’s light, neutral in colour, and extremely strong! French Terry is also very absorbent, so for nappies it's perfect for babies bottoms.
The mixture of hemp and organic cotton makes for a soft, highly absorbent and remarkably resilient fabric. Hemp fibres are 5x stronger and 3x more durable than cotton, so this fabric will last longer than a pure cotton alternative. Around the house, it's a great choice for making sustainable washcloths, flannels, tea towels, hand towels or even making things like textured cushion covers.
When it comes to clothing, you can create some unique pieces with this organic fabric. Try a lightweight sweatshirt, hoodie or a pair of joggers/sweatpants. The 2-way stretch means that whatever clothing you make will have a slight stretchiness, adding extra comfort to your garments.
The fabric takes dye very well, thanks to the advanced absorbency of the hemp fibres and if you use a fibre reactive dye then you'll be pleased at the vibrant, long-lasting colour.
Remember that hemp fabrics get softer with age, so the more you wash and use your French Terry towelling fabric, the softer it will become!
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.
