The Desoto Hotel uses several kinds of environmentally friendly fabrics for our bed sheets. One of our favorite types of fabric is Hemp. Why? Industrial Hemp is well known for its environmental benefits.
Hemp Itself Has No Pesticides and Blocks Harmful UV Rays
Hemp sheets have no residual chemicals. They block the sun’s UV rays, even when Hemp is blended with other fabrics. Another plus? Bugs aren’t big Hemp fans, so Hemp crops don’t need pesticides.
Hemp is a “Super-Fiber”
Hemp, a textile superhero? Break out the cape. That’s the reason that many clothing and body care companies are starting to incorporate hemp. Hemp is also very mold and moisture resistant.
Soft and Strong
Another great benefit of Hemp textiles – the more you use them, the softer they become. Another plus? Hemp truly shows its versatility over time. Hemp fabric is also stronger when it’s moist or wet, so they won’t wear with repeated washings. Hemp fabric also absorbs moisture, one of the reasons why guests will find Hemp bed sheets cool to the touch.
