57-58 inches

Weight: 6.2 oz.

Content: 55% Hemp, 45% Lyocell

Made in China


Washing/Cleaning

Each time hemp is washed it constantly reveals new surfaces, usually becoming softer with use. Given reasonable care it will render a lifetime of service.


Generally speaking, dry cleaning is recommended for drapery hemp, upholstery hemp, decorative hemp, and high end garments.

If you are washing plain hemp fabric that has not yet been made into a garment, then it is very important to surge the edges before wash to prevent fraying.


As with other textiles, always test for color fastness and remember that detergents containing Optical Brightening Agents (OBA) may cause colors to alter slightly and will detract from the appearance of the subtle natural hemp. Bleach should not be used as it can significantly degrade and weaken the natural fibers.


Hemp sheds dirt more readily than other materials and with thorough rinsing comes clean as new after every wash. If stained, use a proprietary stain-remover before washing.


There is no need to use starch except perhaps for the finest hemps, for hemp has a natural crispness. hemp does not have to be tumble-dried - it will naturally dry quickly.


Softening:
Hemp generally will get softer with use and after each wash. If you need to speed up this process then a commercial softener may be used. Another way to soften hemp is to do a hot water wash followed by a tumble dry, repeat these two steps two or three times.
