Hemp & Lycra Rib Knit - Organic 52%H 43%C 5%L - 305g
This is the fabric for you if you’re looking for something with a little more stretch but just as much softness - rib knit fabrics are perfect for making t-shirt or sweatshirt sleeve cuffs and collars. It is extra durable, making it great for these hard-wearing areas of any garment.
We love to use this material for environmentally conscious sportswear, but the limits to its possible uses are only limited to your imagination though!
As you can probably tell, we’re mad about hemp, and this Hemp and lycra fabric is 52% organic hemp. Hemp demands less water than alternative natural materials, and requires absolutely no pesticide, herbicide or chemical fertiliser in its production and is 100% biodegradable. It’s also a natural carbon sink, meaning that it is brilliant at capturing CO2 from the atmosphere and trapping it, and is able to grow in soil where other crops can’t, whilst leaving the earth better and more fertile than the day it was planted!
