We love hemp fibers. They wear very well (being the strongest of the natural fibers), and they wear in rather than out, becoming softer and more lustrous with use. This is the sort of fabric that we love to live in; its relaxed appearance makes it a wonderful choice for the mountains or the beach (hemp is naturally UV, salt water and mildew resistant). Its gutsy weight makes it suitable for many uses, from upholstery to drapery. It can be dressed up for the city, too. Easy to care for, easy to love. Hooray for hemp!
