THE HOME OF HEMP BLAZING THE ECO TRAIL SINCE 1995
Not just for Summer! This fabulously flowing hemp fabric covers a multitude of uses in all manner of clothing & interior projects.
"This finely woven cloth has a stiff handle and no drape, making it perfect for crisp shirts and structured garments. It will hold a press well which makes it ideal for any projects that require pleating. The light cream colour is gorgeous on it's own but will also dye well if you need more opacity."- Vicky, Sewstainability.blog

Despite its light weight and light colour, this is a durable material. Made from 100% hemp, its uses vary from shirts to shawls. This eco-friendly fabric has a stiff body and a good strong structure. It's a semi-opaque fabric, with a fine weave giving it a crisp yet lightweight feel.
Being 100% hemp, this organic fabric is also 100% eco-friendly. Hemp is the most environmentally friendly of all natural fibres, and not only has the least impact on the environment, but actually benefits any environment in which it is grown. It improves soil quality, requires no chemicals, while using 4x less water and only half the land compared to cotton.
This organic cloth fabric takes dye very well, thanks to the high absorbency of hemp fibres.

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.
