As Aussies, we're no strangers to the sun. The warmth and brightness of our climate accompany our beach outings, BBQs, and footy games. But have you ever felt a tad too hot, a smidge too uncomfortable, even when you're sitting in the shade? The culprit might surprise you—it's not the sun, but the fabric of your clothes.

There exists a fabric that not only protects you from the sun but also gets softer with each wear, outlives most items in your wardrobe, and helps the planet. Welcome to the world of hemp.

Hemp is a fabric that offers the highest UPF rating of 50+, providing excellent protection from harmful sun rays​​. Beyond sun protection, hemp stands out for its durability, comfort, and sustainability​​.

Unravelling the Myths About Hemp

Despite these qualities, misconceptions about hemp might be keeping you from embracing this wonder fabric. Let's dispel some of these myths:

Myth 1: Hemp clothing is scratchy and uncomfortable.

Contrary to this belief, hemp fabric actually softens with wear and washing, making it more comfortable over time​​. Furthermore, blending hemp with other materials like cotton or silk can create a softer, more luxurious feel.

Myth 2: Hemp clothing is expensive.

While some high-end hemp clothing brands can be pricey, there are many affordable options available. Because hemp fabric is so durable, it can actually prove to be a more cost-effective choice in the long run as it outlasts other types of clothing​​.

Myth 3: Hemp clothing is illegal.

Hemp often gets unfairly associated with marijuana, leading some to assume that hemp clothing is illegal. However, the hemp used in clothing is made from industrial hemp fibres, which contain only trace amounts of THC and are perfectly legal to grow and use in Australia, among many other countries​​.
