A Hemp nights Sleep!
On our recent trip to Perth where we stayed at the awesome Painted Fish we slept in beautiful HEMP Sheets. So on our return home to our old Conventional Cotton Sheets, Hamish and I both automatically decided we needed NEW SHEETS and they just had to be HEMP. And our beautiful new Hemp Sheets from The Margaret River Hemp CO. arrived today.
SO why HEMP? Well…. I thought I would share a few reasons below.
The most important reason is I aim to live a green and sustainable lifestyle; and when I heard you could get Hemp sheets it seemed like a no brainier, from both a sustainability and environmental perspective.
Hemp is a renewable resource which grows more quickly and easily than trees making hemp more cost effective than waiting decades for trees to grow to be used in man-made fiber production.
Hemp Itself Has No Pesticides and Blocks Harmful UV Rays – Yay no sleeping in chemicals.
Hemp sheets have no residual chemicals. They block the sun’s UV rays, even when Hemp is blended with other fabrics. Another plus? Bugs aren’t big Hemp fans, so Hemp crops don’t need pesticides and neither does my body!
Hemp is a “Super-Fiber”
Hemp is also very mold and moisture resistant. As a fabric, hemp provides all the warmth and softness of other natural textiles but with a superior durability seldom found in other materials. Natural organic hemp fiber ‘breathes’ and is biodegradable.
Soft and Strong
Another great benefit of Hemp textiles – the more you use them, the softer they become. Another plus? Hemp truly shows its versatility over time. Hemp fabric is also stronger when it’s moist or wet, so they won’t wear with repeated washings. Hemp fabric also absorbs moisture, one of the reasons why guests will find Hemp bed sheets cool to the touch.
