Hemp/Organic Cotton Stretch Jersey
Composition: 55% Hemp, 42% Organic Cotton, 3% Spandex
Weight: 198 gsm
Care: Fabric will shrink slightly with first washing. Machine wash with like colours, cold water is best. Tumble dry regular, or hang dry.
This fabric is undyed, ready to be whatever colour you dream it to be.
I use this fabric for making underwear, tank tops, leggings, as well as some children's clothing. It has a smooth feel to it, but with the extra strength of hemp. There is a small amount of spandex, giving the fabric a larger amount stretch than regular jersey. Unlike some stretch fabrics, the stretch retention on this fabric is pretty great! Garments retain their shape even after a lot of wear.

It can be hard to source natural and organic fabrics. Especially when you are a home sewist and looking for something simple to get started with and not wanting to make a large investment. When I started buying new fabrics, I did a lot of research about what fibres I wanted to work with. I use hemp, organic cotton, and linen.
All the fabrics for sale here are ones that I use reguarly. I only offer cuts up to 3 metres as they are intended for smaller home projects. Undyed fabrics dye beautifully with fibre reactive, or natural dyes.
