This light-weight hemp and organic cotton stretch knit feels wonderfully cool on the skin. It is similar in feel to a linen knit fabric, and is an excellent choice for t-shirts and tops. There is enough weight in the fabric to make a loose-fitting dress too.

The hemp in this fabric means the finish is a little rougher than a pure cotton knit. In return, hemp is more breathable than cotton and is a stronger fibre. 

In the knitting process, elastane was added to give the cloth its 4-way medium stretch. Note though that elastane is not biodegradable. Make sure to use a ballpoint sewing needle in your machine.

The colour has been a tricky one to describe and match. It is a shade of mauve, like a field of heather, also reminiscent of red seedless grapes. It is purplish, pinkish, and  brownish. 

Width: 153 cm
Weight: 198 gsm
Color: mauve  

Fibre: 53% hemp, 44% organic cotton (GOTS certificate no 247137) and 3% elastane
Produced in China.

Thread match - this has been a tricky one to match but Gütermann cotton thread in color 2724 is the best option.

Always prewash your fabric at 30/40°C, and preferably cooler on an ongoing basis.
