Hemp fiber is among the Earth’s longest natural soft fibers. Hemp is one of the most durable, breathable and heat retaining fibers in the world. In fact, it is more absorbent, more durable (actually gets softer with each wash), and provides more insulation than cotton fiber. Hemp uses less fertilizers, herbicides and pesticides to grow and it is flame retardant without having to apply harmful chemicals! Hemp even provides unparalleled protection from UV radiation. Hemp is where it's at for sustainability and you can look chill wearing all kinds of hot hemp designs.

The hemp fabric in this garment has rich and supple texture, yet tremendous strength and durability. Hemp is an exceptionally comfortable and healthy fabric to wear, since it's hypoallergenic and nonirritating to the skin. Hemp provides unparalleled protection from UV radiation.
Hemp fabric is very resistant to degradation from mold, bacteria, salt water, sunlight, abrasion, and chemicals, while being fully biodegradable (unlike synthetic fibers). Hemp has excellent insulative and conductive qualities. When compared to cotton, for example, hemp is warmer yet breathes better. For hot weather, hemp has superior conductive qualities to those of all other textile fibers (equaled only by flax), allowing the wearer to feel cool, comfortable, and fresh in very hot and/or humid conditions.
Love to see how great you look wearing any or all of these!! Be sure to send me a pic!! :)
