"Hemp is a hardwearing fibre for clothing, that gives good insulation in the cold, keeps the body cool in summer, and allows perspiration to be absorbed easily. In fact, the plant has some of the same qualities that one finds in wool. Linen and hemp textiles are pleasant to wear and they are far more sustainable than cotton. But they are not produced in Denmark and only on a small scale in the EU. So, to a large extent, it is only China and Asia that are producing hemp textiles today."
"Hemp is a perfect example of a sustainable textile with good properties" according to Rachel Kollerup and Bodil Pallesen, of the Technological Institute in Denmark.
