You’ll love the feel of hemp clothing. Hemp fiber gets stronger, yet softer, over time. It also wicks moisture away from your skin, so you will always feel fresh and dry while wearing hemp clothes. Also, hemp has anti-fungal and anti-microbial properties, making them stay fresher for longer. Some of the items featured here are 100% hemp, and some are a blend of hemp and organic cotton fibers. However, cotton can’t hold a candle to hemp when it comes to eco-friendliness. There are several reasons why hemp is a better choice for the environment than cotton: hemp only needs half the water cotton needs, hemp grows well without pesticides or herbicides, and hemp can produce 4 times the amount of fiber per acre as cotton. The only problem is, hemp is still largely illegal to grow and process in the United States, so all of the hemp we use has to be manufactured in and imported from other countries – mainly China (and also pretty much every other industrialized nation besides US). That is why hemp clothing is priced so differently from your everyday t-shirt. Just imagine if Americans started subsidizing hemp instead of cotton! Everyone would grow hemp, and everyone would wear hemp clothes. Yes, it’s that good.
