Maintaining your hemp clothing

Hemp, a robust natural fiber, has the particularity of creasing easily. When combined with cotton, this improves the comfort and flexibility of the fabric. With repeated washing, the fabric gradually becomes softer. However, hemp is difficult to deep dye, which can lead to fading of clothing made with this fiber. It is recommended to avoid exposure to the sun to prevent premature fading.

If you prefer a smooth look, you can iron hemp clothes without any problem. Unlike synthetic fibers with a uniform appearance, hemp takes time to soften and has more of a “boho” appearance. It has thermoregulatory properties and lightly embraces body heat, which means it will relax a bit like jeans. After the first wash, a slight shrinkage of approximately 4% may occur.

Hemp knits are often softer than woven fabrics. Blends of hemp with Spandex offer more flexibility, while blends with recycled polyester give a fine, satiny appearance.

The mixes available are:
55% Hemp / 45% Organic Cotton (Jersey, muslin, Hempcel, Twill)
53% Hemp / 44% Organic Cotton / 3% Spandex (Jersey)
53% Hemp / 44% Organic Cotton / 3% Spandex (muslin)
Wash in cold water.
Do not use bleach.
Hang to dry. Avoid the sun for drying.
Using the dryer can create a backflow of 4% along the length and 1% across the width.
