Main material: ECO Jersey 55% hemp/45% ORGANIC cotton jersey
Our Sleeping Pouch with Extension has been a favourite for years. Our classic is made of wool, but we decided to add a hemp/organic cotton version too. It can be used for a long time, as it transfers from a sleeping pouch to a tunic. The width is adjustable. Foldable cuffs and removable sleeves, this piece grows along with your child. Sizes
In addition to ManyMonths Natural Woollies, we offer ECO Hempies clothing that has similar growing-with-your-children features as the Woollies.
Benefits of Hemp Clothing
We combine hemp with organic cotton in all our 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 ManyMonths 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! Hemp:
Durable: long strong fibre structure (10 times stronger than cotton)
Breathable and less likely to absorb odours
can absorb up to 20% of its weight and still feels dry to touch
Keeps its shape well
One of the fastest-growing crops
Multiple harvests per year possible
Grows twice as fast as cotton
Cultivation is environmentally friendly: little to no fertilizer required
