The 100% hemp makeup of this organic fabric means that you are also getting a 100% sustainable fabric. Hemp is THE most sustainable of all the natural fibres, and far outperforms organic cotton when it comes to environmental benefits. With cotton, even organic cotton, huge efforts are needed to mitigate the environmental harm from growing the crop, but hemp is the absolute antithesis because it actively helps the environment in which it is grown! It cleans the soil, breaks it up preventing comaction, binds it together preventing erosion, returns nitrogen to the soil and draws up nutrients from deep underground which other crops benefit from later. It's a true planet healer! Choosing a 100% hemp fabric is the most environmentally positive decision you can make.
This natural fabric takes dye very well, and is a joy to sew with. It has a slight stretch, but neatly returns to its original shape thanks to the "elastic" nature of hemp fibres. We're sure you're going to love it, so order a swatch today!
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.
