WHAT DOES HEMP FEEL LIKE?
Our hemp combined with Organic Cotton is beautiful and soft and will be unlike any fabric you have worn before. Hemp is natures technical fabric; it is incredibly strong (up to 3x stronger than cotton!), dries super fast, lasts an age, and with wear and washing will become beautiful and soft and secure the spot of your favourite piece of clothing.
The fabric takes multiple wears and washes to start to wear in and can feel a bit stiff when you first get your hands on it. I have a wool allergy as well as very sensitive skin, and here are my honest thoughts: hemp can have a reputation for being rough (like an experienced farmers hands) when you feel the fabric before it has been washed. This is because hemp is so incredibly strong, and a natural fibre. Where cotton would ordinarily 'pile' (those little balls you see on an old teeshirt - them), become thin and wear out; hemp doesn't pile, becomes softer after each wear, and maintains its strength for many years.
DO THE LEGGINGS WHITEN WHEN YOU BEND OVER?
We did many tests when deciding on fabric and in comparison to recycled plastic leggings, hemp won every time, winning! like all leggings, we recommend wearing underwear closest to your skin tone underneath to help avoid any transparency.
CAN I WEAR THE LEGGINGS OR SHORTS WHILE SQUATTING?
Absolutely! check out our product videos to see how they perform when squatting.
DOES HEMP DRY QUICKLY?
yes! hemp dries incredibly fast. We recommend line drying to save that precious energy!
