This organic bamboo yarn and its fabric has a smooth, soft feel making it a wonderful sustainable clothing fabric. This 240 organic jersey fabric is perfect for making t-shirts, dresses, underwear, bralettes, skirts, shorts, blankets, scarves and hats. It's also a fantastic choice for making sustainable childrens clothing or baby clothing, as the fabric is kind to sensitive skin.

Although there are 2 types of bamboo yarn on the market: viscose bamboo and natural plant bamboo, our bamboo is the viscose variety as up till now, there is only a tiny amount of the pure 'bast' plant fibre version (currently less than 1% of all bamboo fibre) available and it is not made into this type of jersey fabric. Viscose bamboo is an extruded fibre which is a chemical process similar to how rayon, tencel & viscose are produced, so it is a man-made fabric. This type of viscose uses the bamboo as the raw ingredient, the cellulose, in the production of the fibre so it does have eco credentials but not as much as the pure bast plant fibre bamboo.

Including hemp in the fabric blend is a great way to offset the more intensive processing of bamboo fibre into viscose. Hemp is the most sustainable and environmentally friendly fabric by a long shot, and unlike bamboo viscose, hemp does not need to undergo any chemical processing to result in a soft and durable textile.

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.
