Hemp as a Fibre for Textiles

Hemp can easily replace the use of cotton in the making of clothing. In contrast to the cotton industry, which uses 50% of the pesticides sprayed in the world, hemp requires no pesticides for cultivation. In addition, hemp fibres are stronger, longer and more absorbent than cotton. Hemp is also more mildew resistant, has better insulative properties and is less prone to fading than cotton.
