This is a beautifully versatile cloth by Merchant & Mills that works for so many garments. It feels like a cotton, but the hemp content gives some added texture and slub.
This fabric would be lovely for tops, dresses, skirts, loose pants and jackets.
Hemp behaves and looks much like linen. It is also grown and processed in a similar way, yet it can yield twice as much fibre as flax. It has a short growing period of about 100 days and so can be planted and harvested up to four times a year. The cultivation process naturally reduces pests and returns 60-70% of the nutrients it takes into the soil. It requires little water or pesticides and no fertilisers. It is the most carbon negative crop, absorbing more carbon dioxide than it produces.
Made in Turkey and Oeko-Tex certified.
