Single jersey of European hemp in charcoal colour

A supple offwhite jersey made from 100% hemp, grown and knitted in the EU. With it's weight of 330 gr/m2 it has a nice drape and luster and enough body to be used for tops and light sweaters. Great for summer nights, spring and fall seasonal wear.
Hemp does not enclose much air and has relatively poor insulation properties. In this it resembles linen: hemp fabrics 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.
Hemp is well supported when worn directly on the skin. This knitted fabric doesn't crinkle as much as woven fabrics made from hemp.

  • High quality natural fibers
  • 100% European origin
  • soft on the skin

Sustainable hemp

Hemp is considered to be one of the most sustainable textiles known. The plant doesn't require much irrigation during growth, has almost no natural enemies (insects) and therefore needs no treatment with pesticides. Because it grows very fast (it can go up to four meters in just a couple of months) weeds don't stand a chance, don't hamper the growth of the hemp plant and herbicides are not necessary. Hemp is a natural product: it is 100% biodegradable, very strong and has a nice touch and feel.
