Hemp clothing may sound odd to you but wait until you hear all about it. Some people are dubbing it the miracle fiber because it outranks its competition in quality and advantages. People everywhere are becoming Hempsters and loving the hemp lifestyle.
Where to begin? There are so many positive things to talk about when it comes to hemp clothes, so let’s just dive right in.
The first thing that comes to mind when I think of this material is softness. The more you wash hemp clothing, the softer it becomes. That’s what makes this organic clothing so addicting.
You might start out with a T-shirt or a pair of socks and
before you know it, your whole wardrobe is nothing but hemp clothes. You can literally dress from head to toe in it.
You can find hemp women’s clothing, hemp men’s clothing, hemp baby/kid's clothing and even hemp pet clothing. Everyone is feeling the comfort. One of the most popular brands is Hemp Traders and they have the most comfortable T-shirt made of soft hemp. We hope you will visit there and try one for yourself. You will fall in love with the hemp fabric.
This organic clothing is special because not only is it good for the environment, it’s good for our bodies.
Hemp fiber is very strong and durable, but what really makes it stand out from any other fiber is that it is lightweight, absorbent, breathable and wicks away moisture from your body. It also has the capability of protecting you from UV rays.
You’re probably thinking, well that’s good and well, but what else is so great about it?
Maybe you are into sports or outdoor hobbies and you really work up a sweat. Like I mentioned above, this material wicks away moisture, but it is also anti-microbial, resistant to mold and mildew and doesn’t retain odor.
So, whether you are in warm weather or cold weather, hemp clothing is the way to go. It keeps you cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
If you are like me and live in the frozen tundra in the winter, the hemp winter jackets and coats are my go to. You can find them in either a dressy fashion or your everyday-wear.
Hemp clothing is very durable and will last a long time. You can wash it regularly and it can withstand any temperature, but cold to warm water is recommended. You can also use your choice of laundry soap. Fabric softener is not needed, since it softens with every wash. Do avoid using any bleach products though.
Since hemp is naturally porous, it causes the fabric to dry much quicker. You can either hang them out to dry or tumble dry them on a low temperature. Drying hemp clothes on high heat can cause shrinkage.
If you need to iron your hemp clothing, it is best to turn it inside out and iron while damp. Ironing from the inside helps to maintain the texture of the hemp fiber.
You might think that it can’t get any better than that, but it does. Organic hemp is very earth friendly. It grows without any herbicides, pesticides or fertilizers. It uses half the water compared to other crops and enriches the soil when it sheds its leaves throughout the season.
Whereas, cotton is a natural fiber, but it uses up a significant amount of pesticides and herbicides that are sprayed on crops all over the world. This is very detrimental to our health, water and the environment as a whole.
Did you know that one acre of hemp can produce the same amount of material it would take 2 to 3 acres of cotton to produce?
So, not only do we benefit from wearing hemp clothes, we also help the environment. This truly is the miracle plant!
