If you've been searching for a super lightweight 100% organic cotton jersey fabric for your next project, then it's time to think, "why not hemp?". This hemp and organic cotton jersey fabric brings all of the soft comfort of cotton, with the added durability and eco-friendly credentials of hemp. The blend of 55% hemp and 45% organic cotton really does bring the best of both worlds, making your next textile project even more sustainable than could ever be achieved with a pure cotton alternative while delivering all of the much-loved properties of cotton fabrics.
Whether you're making t-shirts, tops, dresses, skirts or other clothing items, this super light fabric performs well as a lightweight material that will keep you cool during the summer months, or as a great base layer when things get a little colder! Thanks to the temperature regulating properties of hemp fibres (they're thermodynamic, insulating and breathable, while also being naturally moisture-wicking!) you'll stay comfortable, dry and fresh whatever the season!
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.
