THE HOME OF HEMP BLAZING THE ECO TRAIL SINCE 1995
This really is a versatile hemp fabric and can be used for making jeans or any trousers that need that integral strength. Also works fantastically as an upholstery fabric - why not try it for cushion covers!
"This is a really versatile fabric, it's a good weight denim perfect for jeans, jackets, coats and bags - or any pattern that requires denim or canvas! The colour is a light ivory which is perfect for dyeing and the twill weave is pronounced giving it a beautiful look."- Vicky, Sewstainability.blog

This comfortable twill/denim fabric, is made from organic hemp and cotton, is lighter than our alternative 100% hemp pure denim twill and has a tighter weave. This organic denim fabric makes great jeans, jackets, shirts, bags, skirts, shorts and dresses.
The natural fabric has a lovely texture, with a pronounced weave and is comfortable against the skin while also being durable and hard-wearing. Any garments made from this sustainable denim fabric will only get softer and more comfortable with age thanks to the 55% hemp content.
This sustainable denim fabric is a lovely natural creamy colour, giving you the opportunity to dye it to whatever colour you choose! If you're looking for a traditional denim blue colour then you could try our "Jeans Blue" eco reactive dye pods, they're also available in a rainbow of other colours.
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.
