The initial application of hemp, known as the king of natural fibers, originated from China. Hemp fibers have good moisture absorption and breathability properties, and hemp is no exception. Maybe we are more exposed to flax, but hemp also has There are some advantages that linen does not have. Below, I will introduce to you the advantages and disadvantages of hemp fabric.

What are the advantages and disadvantages of hemp fabric?

Advantages of hemp fabric:
Moisture absorption and breathability: Generally processed hemp fabric will have a smaller degree of molecular polymerization. In addition, there are a lot of pores in the longitudinal direction of the fiber, which even exceeds flax and ramie in terms of air permeability. In addition, hemp fiber can absorb moisture, so the moisture absorption capacity of hemp fabric is also very good.

Soft and comfortable: Although hemp fiber is a bit hard, hemp is much better than linen, and its specific gravity is lighter than linen. Among linen, hemp is the most comfortable, and clothes are not as processed or processed. Will sting.

Adsorption: Hemp fiber can absorb harmful substances and volatilize them. For example, formaldehyde, benzene and other substances in the air can be well absorbed by hemp.

Anti-static: Because of the excellent arrangement and orientation of hemp fiber molecules, hemp fabrics generally do not generate static electricity, but they will still generate static electricity to varying degrees in particularly dry environments. , but it is much better when compared with cotton fiber or silk fabrics. On the other hand, cotton and hemp have a moisture content of up to 30%. Such high humidity is difficult to generate static electricity.

Anti-ultraviolet/noise: The cross-section of hemp fiber has an irregular polygonal structure, and this structure can block light waves/sound waves, etc. Therefore, hemp has very good anti-ultraviolet and noise capabilities. This has led some manufacturers to choose hemp to make curtains to achieve sound insulation.

Antibacterial and antibacterial: This is a characteristic of all linen, and of course hemp is no exception. The antibacterial principle of hemp is that hemp fiber absorbs a large amount of oxygen, thereby limiting the growth and reproduction of bacteria. Secondly, hemp can quickly absorb sweat and evaporate it, which also destroys the humid environment needed for bacterial reproduction. Finally, hemp fiber itself has a certain antibacterial ability, because hemp contains antibacterial organic acids and inorganic salts. substance.

Disadvantages of hemp fabric:
The main disadvantage of hemp is that it is basically inelastic. Low elasticity means that the fabric is prone to wrinkles after stretching and folding, but compared with its advantages, this Disadvantages cannot stop people’s enthusiasm for hemp fabrics.
