Fiber, Weave, Weight: 100% hemp, linen, 5.8oz/yd
About: Semi-sheer hemp linen has a nubby, earthy texture. The fabric begins with a stiff, crisp hand but continues to soften beautifully with each wash. No dyes were used, resulting in the fiber's natural ivory hue.
Hemp is an ultra-durable fiber that has been used in textile production for thousands of years. Hemp grows fast, uses little water, and requires no pesticides or herbicides (fun fact: hemp is naturally insect resistant!), resulting in a fiber much gentler on the earth than cotton or linen. Hemp is considered by many to be the most adaptable and sustainable plant on the earth, and it also happens to be wonderful against your skin.
Source: Hemp linen is sourced from China, where the fibers are grown, harvested, and woven into textiles.
