Myth: Hemp clothing is itchy

Hemp clothing is actually very soft and it keeps getting softer over time. The more hemp is worn, the softer it gets: wearing in, not out. Hemp thrives on regular use and washing, which improves its natural lustre and feel. Hemp sheds a natural microscopic layer of plant fibre each time it's washed, which exposes a fresh surface, allowing hemp to retain its sleek sheen.⁣⁣⁠

Hemp has been used as a clothing fabric for thousands of years, considered the perfect fibre by many cultures. As hemp is a plant-based fabric, it is naturally hypoallergenic and is suitable for even the most sensitive skin types. It is, in fact, better than most of the fabrics we put on our skin since the growing of hemp fibre does not require the use of chemicals.
