This superb quality hemp and bamboo stretch fleece is a twist on one of our all-time most popular fabrics, the classic hemp and organic cotton fleece.

Instead of cotton, this sustainable fabric incorporates bamboo, and it also features 5% spandex/lycra for additional stretch. We're always loath to include man-made fibres in our fabrics range, but we do recognise there is a solid use-case for including them sometimes. Our reasoning is that it's better that someone uses a fabric that is 95% natural and sustainable, rather than reverting to a fabric with a larger amount of man-made fibres. Any negatives from the man-made component is offset by the astoundingly good work that the hemp does for the planet.

It's great for adding thermal lining to clothing items, as well as for making baby clothing, washcloths, flannels and hand towels. The possibilities are almost endless with this beautiful hemp and bamboo fabric. Pick up a swatch today, and find out why we're so excited about this new addition to our fabrics collection!

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

Then look no further because Hemp Seeds really can be considered the super food: they are one of the most complete sources of vegetable nutrition. Containing each of the big three: perfectly balanced Omega Oils, EFAs (Essential Fatty Acids), and high quality protein containing all of the essential amino acids, not only does the nutrition in Hemp Seeds come in an optimum ratio, but also in the most easily digestible format . It's a win, win, win!

Roughly 35% of Hemp Seed content is oil. This oil contains 80% essential fatty acids (EFAs) comprising 50 - 70% Linoleic Acid (LA), 15 - 25% Alpha-Linolenic Acid (ALA) and 1 - 6% Gamma-Linolenic Acid (GLA). It is also contains DHA & EPA. The balance of Linoleic Acid and Alpha-Linolenic Acid in Hempseed oil ably satisfies our needs for EFAs.

Like Soya Beans, Hemp Seeds can be made into numerous nutritious food products. Once the seeds have been squeezed for their oil content, the resulting seed cake can be used for flour to make breads, cakes, cookies and pasta. In addition, the soaked seeds can be made into 'milk', ice cream and non-dairy cheeses. Eating Hemp won't get you high. Hemp is a variety of the plant species Cannabis Sativa but only contains minute amounts of the psychoactive component (THC) - too small for even the slightest effect.

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.
