FINE HEMP AND HEMS
However it is very good to know that at last the fashion houses have realised the charm of hemp, now often mixed with cotton, or occasionally linen, and I show two examples that came as 'junk mail' to me from poetry fashion.co.uk. and they remind me very much of the fine handwork on the old French work-shirts. It is considered extremely healthy for babies and bed-ridden people as any moisture in the bedding is 'wicked away' to the centre of the fibres and the sleeper stays dry. Maybe it will be for the sportswear of the future? Scroll sideways for the .full view. I have no connection with the fashion house Poetry but rather like their stuff!
