Sweat made from a blend of hemp and organic cotton. The colour effect was created by first dyeing the yarns black and white and then twining them. This fabric feels soft, is skin-friendly and ideal for sweaters and loungewear.
The hemp in this fabric was grown in North China, the organic cotton in India. The fabric is knitted in China in a factory that is affiliated with the Fair Wear Foundation.
Fabrics from hemp and organic cotton are very suitable for apparel. Hemp doesn’t enclose much air and has relatively poor insulation properties. Therefore fabrics with hemp always feel fresh and cool, a distinct advantage for summer clothing. In addition hemp is highly absorbent, it takes up water rapidly and also releases it quickly. On hot days this helps in regulating the microclimate between body and clothing. Organic cotton is soft, comfortable and is affordable. Both fibers are well supported when worn directly on the skin.
We used this fabric also in our pattern collection. Both the Border Sweater and the Lazy Daisy Sweater are made with this material.
