Comforter cover hemp and linen
The Austrian Leinenweberei Vieböck has been manufacturing outstanding linen and linen blend fabrics since 1832. Among its latest products is this winter bedding, which owes its warming properties to its 59 percent hemp content. Especially for Manufactum, the covers are finished with twisted buttons in black. In this design, you get the hemp bedding only with us.
Winter warm and soft. Bedding made of hemp and linen
In this bedding, the combination of warming hemp (59%) and cooling linen (41%) ensures a comfortable sleeping climate, especially in winter. Both materials can absorb a lot of moisture and quickly dissipate it again. Unlike linen, which as a good heat conductor is classically used for summer textiles, however, hemp can also warm. Thus, hemp bedding supports a balanced and pleasantly tempered sleeping climate under your winter comforter.
Both hemp and linen fibers are characterized by a very smooth surface and are therefore perceived as particularly pleasant on the skin. At the same time they are dirt-repellent and therefore easy to clean. For our bed linen, the hemp and linen fibers are spun into fine yarn (thickness 26 Nm) and processed into a dense, canvas-bound fabric (basis weight 178 g/sqm). Thanks to a prewash, the bed linen is already supple and soft to the touch, showing none of the initial stiffness typical of hemp and linen. Like linen, hemp is durable and tear-resistant, so it can withstand many washes and becomes a little softer with each wash. When ironing the easy-care comforter covers, you should only make sure that the hemp linen fabric is still a little damp.
Old yet modern. Hemp
Hemp, along with flax and nettle, is one of our oldest useful and cultivated plants. Until the 19th century, they were important raw materials for the clothing industry, for ropes, ropes, sailcloth and much more. With the industrial revolution and the triumph of cotton, the robust fiber plants lost importance, but as rapidly renewable, natural raw materials they already score points during cultivation and harvesting and are therefore among the most sustainable materials today.
For example, hemp requires significantly less water than cotton. Hemp is frugal and pest-resistant, so there is no need to use herbicides, insecticides or synthetic fertilizers either during cultivation or during harvesting and processing. With its large root system, the deep-rooted plant ensures good soil loosening, which has a positive effect on soil rigidity. And hemp suppresses wild weed growth, which benefits crops grown later in the rotation. But even as a monoculture, hemp can be grown on the same land for several years without any problems thanks to its self-tolerance.
Finally, hemp as a textile is also superior to cotton in many properties: Resistance and wear resistance of the long, tear-resistant fibers are significantly better, which is why even sailcloth used to be made from hemp. Even today, extraction and processing are very costly, but thanks to new processes it is now possible to spin very fine, uniform yarns from the rather rough hemp fiber bundles, as required for clothing and bedding. The use as filling for bedding, on the other hand, is relatively new.
Until 1996, the cultivation of commercial hemp was prohibited in Germany; since then, the share of local and also European hemp production has been increasing, but it is far from being able to meet the strongly increased demand. The majority of processed hemp fiber therefore comes from China.
