What Are the Advantages of Hemp Clothing?

Wednesday, Feb 7, 2018

Kannaway now distributes hemp clothing and accessories from Hempy’s in its online store. What makes hemp a superior choice in fabric for clothing? It is durable and long lasting while retaining comfort. And because it is grown free of chemicals, it is the healthy and environmentally conscious material for everyday clothing.

Here are a few more reasons to choose hemp clothing and accessories from Hempy’s and Kannaway.

Hemp stalks can be processed to create an all-natural fiber for clothing, canvas, rope, and more. But why is hemp more sustainable for use in clothing?

Like hemp, cotton is a natural fiber, but growing it accounts for a significant portion (perhaps up to 25%) of the pesticides and insecticides sprayed on the world’s crops. Additionally, cotton takes extremely high quantities of water and only produces once per growing season.

Hemp, on the other hand, can be grown chemical free, keeping contaminants out of the local ecosystem and out of the final hemp products. Hemp can be sown close together and takes much less water than cotton. In some regions, hemp can be grown twice or more per growing season, further increasing its sustainability.
