Hemp fibres have been used for more than 6000 years! They are the ultimate bio fibres and can be cultivated at all latitudes and need no watering, fertilisers or pesticides.
As a hollow fibre, hemp has a cooling effect in summer and is warming in winter. Clothes made of help offer anitbacterial and fungicidal properties and can absort body moisture. They will also reflect both UVA and UVB. Amazing stuff, right!
