Hemp clothing best for body warmth - Stylish Organics

With winter weather showing temperatures dropping to low digits in many parts of the US and Canada, most of us are scrambling around to pack on the fabrics and fibers that will retain our body’s warmth. If you are one with green ideas as part of your living style one fabric that really fits the bill is hemp. Very much in demand, the cellulose rich, hollow fibers make hemp extremely strong and heat capturing. Clothing made from hemp fibers is very durable with thermal properties for great winter wear.

As much as 20 times stronger than cotton, hemp is a perfect choice for making clothing with more durable properties. Apparel produced from hemp fabric is very durable, more absorbent and mildew-resistant than cotton, anti-microbial, and are more effective than other fabrics at blocking the sun’s UV rays. Because of its hollow fibers, hemp fabric is thermal in cold weather and cooling in warmer weather.

With the discovery of softening techniques hemp garments have retained their traditional qualities with additional softness that makes it an attractive choice for clothing. “Hemp Clothing continues to be a popular choice especially for winter wear,” says Lynn Lavanga, Owner of Stylish Organics.

“I receive lots of feedback from customers who have purchased hemp clothing and are thrilled with its versatility, durability, and sustainable green properties. We encourage consumers to search out products made from hemp as a delightful surprise of its versatility and also as a kindness to Mother Earth.

The hemp plant is one of the most versatile eco-friendly plants on Earth. In addition to clothing, every part of the plant – outer stalk, inner stalk, seed kernel, seed husk, and leaves – is utilized to make textiles, paper, food, medicine, building materials, paint, detergent, oil, ink, and fuel. Unlike other crops, hemp can grow in most climates, in most soil conditions, without fertilizers, and without pesticides. It grows fast-about 25 tons per acre per year, enriches the soil by adding nutrients, controls the weeds, creates more oxygen than any other crop and it is biodegradable. Sustainable, cost-effective, versatile hemp is helping to keep the world green.
