prAna presents soft basics made from hemp

Leveraging hemp, one of the eco friendliest textile fibres in the world, and its unique features, prAna has developed its new Cardiff Fleece. The durable, fleecy and sustainable hemp fleece material will be used for cosy, go-anywhere clothes like the Cozy Up Sweatshirt, the company reports.

Sustainable clothes and natural fibres on the rise: for fall 2018, prAna is extending its range of hemp textiles due to their environment-friendly character and functional aspects. “Hemp is a very robust plant and can be grown without chemical pesticides or fertilisers, resulting in better health and safety for farmers and fertile soils. Besides its small ecological footprint, hemp has a natural climate regulating function, wicks moisture, is antimicrobial, sturdy and long-lasting,” the company explains.

The new Cardiff Fleece by prAna aims to prove that hemp clothes don’t need to be itchy and scratchy. The innovative hybrid fleece consists of hemp, Tencel and recycled polyester.

These three fibres are not only kind to the planet but also play perfectly together, the company believes. Tencel is said to give the fabric a buttery soft feel, hemp caters to an eco-friendly production and recycled polyester adds in performance attributes like lower weight and quick drying times.

The Cardiff Fleece is used to create casual basics like Cozy Up Sweatshirt, Wayfree or Trawler Hooded Henley Fleece.
