Hemp is an organic crop by nature, needing no pesticides to be grown. It grows tightly spaced, out-competing any weeds so herbicides are not necessary. It also leaves a weed-free field for a following crop.
When 55% hemp is used instead of 100% conventionally grown cotton, over 2500 litres of water can be saved per T-shirt.
Fabrics made of at least one-half hemp block the sun's UV rays more effectively than other fabrics.
Hemp fibres are longer, stronger, more absorbent and more mildew-resistant than cotton.
Hemp fibres are thermodynamic, keeping the wearer warm in Winter and cool in Summer.
