Mid Hemp Silk - 82%H / 18%S - 3.4oz
This is the fabric for you if you’re looking for something a little more delicate. It’s slightly heavier than our finer silk alternative, but just as attractive, with a slight off-white colour.
We think this fabric could be brilliant for crafting a stunning dress or wrap, although the only limit to this fabric’s uses, of course, is your own imagination! It’s also surprisingly durable for a fabric with such an elegant appearance.
As you can probably tell, we’re mad about hemp, and this beautiful Hemp Silk is 82% organic hemp. Hemp demands less water than alternative natural materials, and requires absolutely no pesticide, herbicide or chemical fertilizer in its production and is 100% biodegradable. It’s also a natural carbon sink, meaning that it is brilliant at capturing CO2 from the atmosphere and trapping it, and is able to grow in soil where other crops can’t, whilst leaving the earth better and more fertile than the day it was planted!
