Benefits of Hemp Clothing
We combine hemp with organic cotton in all our MaM & ManyMonths ECO Hempies (55% hemp/organic cotton 45%). The woven items are lightweight linen fabric and the knitted items are light or medium weight jerseys.
Our hemp blend fabrics are pre-washed twice to avoid shrinkage and make the clothing ready to wear straight out of the package.
Like wool, hemp can absorb quite a lot of humidity (up to 20% of its weight) and keep feeling dry to the touch. Our ECO Hempies are highly breathable and feel cool in the summer heat.
Hemp itself is UV-resistant and has antimicrobial properties — clothing made of it also carries these properties. This means that hemp fabric naturally holds out against microbes and can repress the growth of bacteria. Your clothing stays fresh longer and you can opt to wash them less often than other clothing, which is better for the environment as it saves both water and energy. Hemp clothing doesn't mind washing though — actually, your pieces become even softer with every wash!
