Hemp fabric is a natural textile fiber that has many advantages over other fabrics. It is much stronger and more durable than most natural textile fibers, and its porous personality allows it to breathe, keeping you cool in summer and warm in winter. Hemp is also a highly sustainable, low-impact crop that can be sustainably converted into fabric. Additionally, hemp will retain dye better than cotton and will prevent colors from fading.
It also has natural thermoregulatory properties due to its hollow structure, which allows for an optimal amount of air flow. Hemp has even been found to lower the intraocular pressure that causes blindness in glaucoma victims more safely and effectively than any other remedy. Unfortunately, hemp has been subject to negative public relations campaigns in the past due to its similarity to marijuana plants. However, hemp plants are easily distinguishable from marijuana plants and the government should not be fighting the growth of hemp.
Hemp is the natural fiber most resistant to ultraviolet light and offers protection against the sun's rays. It is also a natural weed suppressant, which naturally competes with and protects the weeds in its environment. Hemp clothing is made all over the world by well-known brands such as Patagonia, Bono's Edun and Giorgio Armani. Hemp food manufacturers, such as French Meadow Bakery, Living Harvest, Nature's Path and Nutiva, now make their products with Canadian hemp.
Hemp fabric can take months to biodegrade compared to the hundreds of years it will take polyester clothing to break down. In conclusion, hemp fabric is a great choice for clothing due to its many benefits. It also has natural thermoregulatory properties due to its hollow structure, which allows for an optimal amount of air flow.
