In addition to the wool collection MaMidea also has the Manymonths Eco-hempies collection. This collection consists of wonderfully comfortable clothing, made of hemp (55%) and lightweight linen made of organic cotton (45%). Hemp is one of the most sustainable clothing fabrics, because it grows quickly, provides strong fibers and requires less water. Nice and cool in the summer, even in hot and humid climates, and warm during the spring and fall.
The fabric, in combination with organic cotton, is breathable and only gets softer and better after washing and wearing it.

ManyMonths ECO Hempies - This is Why!
Hempies are particularly durable due to hemp's long, strong fibre structure. Stay comfortable in any weather: cool in the summer even in hot and humid climates, and warm during spring and fall. Combine with Woollies during the coldest season. Minimal ecological footprint, hemp is one of the most eco-friendly fibres in the world; our ECO Woven and ECO Jersey fabrics are completely biodegradable. A win-win for both your child and the environment!
Why have we chosen hemp fabric for our collection?
The hemp fibre is porous, which means that it breathes very well and feels wonderfully cool in the summer. Still, it is considered to be about ten times stronger than cotton, and thus tends to be much more durable in use. Hemp clothing softens perfectly in use, so these garments quickly become favourites we don’t want to take off at all.
The hemp crop doesn’t need herbicides, pesticides, fungicides or even fertilizers to grow, so its cultivation is environmentally friendly and the clothing naturally safe to use
