Why hemp is such a great fit for guys
Hemp is a great fiber for eco-friendly men's clothing that's stylish, long lasting, odor resistant and good for the environment.
Hemp’s fiber molecule has a shaft-like structure that allows it to do the following:
- Wick moisture right off the body and dry quickly
- In cold conditions, even feel warm when wet
- In very hot and/or humid conditions, the wearer feels cool, comfortable and fresh
Hemp has an anti-bacterial quality, so clothing is resistant to developing odor even after wearing a shirt multiple times without washing. This makes it especially great for travel. Hemp is hypoallergenic and non-irritating to the skin.
Hemp fiber is longer, stronger, more absorbent and more insulative than cotton fiber. It’s also fully biodegradable (unlike synthetic fibers).
Hemp makes a strong, durable, comfortable, healthy and high-performance fabric that’s great for all seasons and for use indoors and out. And though industrial hemp cannot be used to get high, the U.S. is the only industrialized nation in the world that does not recognize the value of industrial hemp and permit its production.
