I combine the softness of organic cotton and the natural durability of hemp in a lightweight plain weave muslin fabric. I have a rustic slubby texture and good structure, much like linen, whilst also offering a lovely soft hand and gentle drape. I am not fully opaque but do keep things relatively covered up and a subtle sheen gives me a more elegant appearance. 

I would make a stunning classic shirt or blouse, crisp dresses and lightweight summer shorts or pants. I'm a sophisticated basic.

Also available in natural white

We do our best to give you an accurate snap of our beautiful fabric and yarn but we know (from experience) that screen displays can be misleading and nothing beats seeing and feeling it in person. This is why we offer samples for purchase, so you can feel confident in your choices.

Why I'm Better

Industrial Hemp is derived from the bast fibres of the cannabis sativa plant and, although visually and taxonomically similar to it's infamous cousin, it has no psychoactive properties. It grows like a 'weed', requires minimal water and no herbicides or pesticides to thrive, produces incredible yield, improves soil health and the entire plant can be used. It is durable, feels similar to linen and blends beautifully with other natural fibres. It is the unsung hero of sustainable fibres.

Organic Cotton is a more sustainable and ethical alternative to conventional cotton. It is grown without pesticides from non-genetically modified seeds, it requires less water and avoids harmful chemicals increasing soil fertility. This not only benefits the land but worker's health improves in turn benefiting the larger community. And organisations like GOTS have taken a holistic approach to improve all stages of producing organic textiles.
