Have you ever heard of hemp clothing or even considered that there’s another option for clothing outside of cotton? Well truth be told, hemp clothing it’s actually one of the best options to use instead of cotton.
In this article I’m gonna give you 8 different fascinating reasons why you should ditch cotton clothing for hemp clothing. Not only that, but I’m going to give you discount codes for a couple of the hemp clothing brands I have tried and stand by.
Hemp clothing is about sourcing it from reliable and eco-friendly manufacturers who care about the quality of their products.
1. Hemp Clothing is 3x Stronger
The first reason is that hemp is extremely strong and durable especially in comparison to cotton. Both are naturally occurring fibers but hemp is actually three times stronger than cotton. This means that him clothing is going to last longer, endure more, and have less damage.
Cannabis and hemp have been found to have high antimicrobial properties. Although neither of them are extremely correlated with repelling diseases or illnesses, both naturally repel most bacteria and pests. Cannabis actually got it’s slang name “weed” because of its natural antimicrobial properties. Hemp and cannabis plants can grow out in the open with zero to no pesticides and grow like a “weed”. Since hemp is part of the cannabis family it also has high antimicrobial properties making it hypoallergenic.
3. Hemp Fibers Lasts Longer
As mentioned above it’s much stronger than cotton, which makes it more durable and last longer. Think of all the old cotton shirts you have that lose their shape, shrink, and begin to look faded. Hemp is a natural occurring fiber and will have similar effects but it will take longer for hemp fiber to get to that point. Meaning your clothes will last longer!
4. Hemp Clothing is Breathable
Hemp is a naturally porous material making it extremely breathable and comfortable. Most of the hemp clothing I’ve ever tried is Super soft, cozy, and easy to wear in all temperatures.
5. Temperature Regulating
Speaking of temperatures, hemp helps your body fluctuate from colder weather to warmer weather due to the nature of the fibers. The hemp fiber actually acts similar to a fiber such as bamboo or wool. These types of fibers retain more heat when it’s cold out and retain less heat when it’s warm out. This is due to the porous quality of the fibers, making the material great for layering or for hot sunny days.
6. Retains Dyes and Quality
Since hemp fiber is extremely durable and last longer than cotton, the fiber also retains dyes and colors much more effectively. This is mostly due to the way the fiber interacts with water. Hemp fibers are more water absorbent and therefore more color absorbent. This quality will prevent your hemp clothing from fading as quickly as cotton clothing.
7. Similar Care as Cotton
Since hemp is a natural fiber just like cotton, it can have similar effects as cotton over time. You may be wondering if hemp clothing shrinks just like cotton clothing does and the truth is that it can. With proper washing and drying such as cold water and tumble dry low, shrinking can be prevented. Since care is similar to cotton, it makes the switch to hemp less impactful on your routine.
8. Cheaper Over Time
The only downside to hemp clothing in comparison to cotton clothing is that the prices can be significantly higher. This is due to the fact that hemp fibers are less common than cotton fibers. The hemp industry in general is a much smaller industry than the cotton industry, making supply low. However, buying hemp clothing is going to give you all of the great outcomes as I said above. If you pay a higher price for hemp clothing instead of a lower price for cotton clothing then you’ll be getting more for your money over time. This is particularly because hemp clothing last significantly longer than cotton clothing so consider hemp a longterm investment with better return than cotton would ever allow.
Where to Shop
So now that I’ve convinced you that hemp clothing is one of the best clothing purchases I have ever made I’m going to share with you two clothing brands that I really love and provide discounts.
Truly my favorite thing about hemp clothing thus far is that the material is different than cotton. I find the fibers just a tad bit more dense and the clothing material feels much more intentionally soft. I do feel as though the heat that the clothing retains matches better with my body than cotton can. I also really enjoy the smell and smoothness of the hemp clothing that I own.
Just to be clear hemp clothing and CBD infused clothing are very different products. Hemp clothing is made with the gentle fibers of the hemp plant while CBD infused clothes are simply apparel items that have been infused with CBD products in some way ,shape, or form. What I have discussed here in this article is not CBD infused clothing. I have discussed the benefits of apparel items that have been created from the fibers of the hemp plant.
Nusumeria sells a hemp fiber sweatshirt in various earthy colors. I came across Nusumeria about six months ago and instantly fell in love with their products. Their hoodies are all 100% premium hemp and organic cotton which make the ultimate cozy feeling when slipping it on.

HempX’s t-shirts are my favorite because they are extremely soft and breathable. I have yet to try their sweatpants and I am scared it will be the only thing I ever wear again. Which is dangerous and highly tempting! (;
HempX also has a wide range of designs that I find artistic and edgy.
