Hemp, known as the ‘miracle fiber’ is a wholly made natural fiber that is completely and naturally resistant to odors, is hypoallergenic, stronger and softer than cotton, mold and mildew resistant, dust mite and bed bud resistant and is breathable and is ‘moisture wicking’-(fast drying prevents sweat saturation in mattress). Hemp mattresses are super comfortable, breathable and gets softer with every wash. Hemp is also eco-friendly and provides rich nutrients back to the soil. Additionally, fabrics made from hemp can last up to 30 years on average, while fabrics made from cotton can usually last up to 10 years. This is partly due to their high tensile strength and resistance to temperature changes and humidity. Consequently, repeated washing does not damage hemp fabric.
