There’s a lot to love about hemp clothing in terms of both sustainability and performance!
The hemp plant needs very little water, grows very quickly, and is naturally pest-resistant, requiring little to no pesticides or fertilizers. Hemp also replenishes nutrients to the soil — in fact, hemp is often used for crop rotations to help restore the soil!
As if that’s not enough, hemp is also carbon-negative, because it absorbs more carbon from the atmosphere while it’s growing than the carbon emitted by harvesting, processing, and transporting it.
Now let’s talk performance. When transformed into fabric, hemp is breathable and thermo-regulating, meaning hemp clothing can keep you cool in the heat and warm in the cold. Hemp is also incredibly durable and while it’s not a stretchy fiber, it gets softer and more comfortable with each wear. CFDA also reports that hemp is ultra-absorbent, making it a great candidate for natural dyeing!
