Hemp is a hollow fibre - in summer it has a cooling effect, in winter - it is warming. Clothes made of hemp absorb body moisture, reflect both UVB and UVA rays, and have antibacterial properties. By default, hemp can be considered as 100% natural fibre due to its natural resistance to pests, similar to Flax (Linen). During its growth, hemp plants don't need neither fertilizers nor pesticides. Lang Yarn Canapa is a pure hemp yarn for knitting, It is manufactured using a special dye technique to give a slightly colourwashed look.
