There is nothing more gross and embarrassing than sweating through your clothes in the hot summer heat. Choosing the right breathable fabric to endure the heat and humidity is crucial to your comfort.
Synthetic fabrics such as rayon and polyester are your worst choice as they will trap the heat and make you sweat more, not to mention the toll that these fabrics take on the environment. These cheap fabrics release microscopic pieces of plastic every time they are washed, polluting our oceans. It’s time that we all consider more environmentally friendly options when choosing our clothing.
Your best bet is to invest in clothing made from natural fibers. Hemp is the ideal option for summer wear as it allows air to circulate and absorbs moisture. It is antimicrobial and odor-resistant, keep embarrassing BO at bay. This even means you don’t have to wash your clothes every time you wear them because they stay fresh longer!
Hemp fabric is woven with long fibers making it extremely durable. Your clothing will hold its shape for years to come. It also holds dye extremely well, keeping your colours from fading. These added benefits will save you money over time because your hemp clothing will hold up so well that you will decrease the amount of clothing you need to purchase.
With each wear and wash, hemp clothing will become softer and more comfortable. It is smooth against the skin so is great for those with sensitive skin and allergies.
