    General Information

    Lightweight and cooling. Summer comforter with hemp filling

    Using hemp as a filling for a summer comforter is unusual, but obvious, since it has outstanding moisture-regulating abilities, which it can display particularly well in summer. Like linen, hemp fibers can quickly absorb a great deal of moisture - up to a third of their own weight - without feeling damp. But they also wick moisture away just as quickly, which is why hemp is perceived as cooling. At the same time, it ensures a dry sleeping climate even in midsummer temperatures - ideal for tropical nights, but also for cooler summer nights. This is because, unlike linen, hemp fibers can also provide warmth because they are hollow on the inside and store heat-insulating air here. Another plus, especially for those who prefer lightweight blankets: hemp fibers have a low dead weight. For our summer blanket they are processed into a loose, breathable fleece, the blanket is therefore particularly light and lies pleasantly airy on the body. The ticking is made of fine, skin-friendly cotton satin, the cotton for it comes from controlled organic cultivation.
    Our summer blanket made of hemp can not be washed, but that does not matter at all, because the hemp fibers are due to their smooth surface and the fact that they do not contain proteins (such as keratin and lanolin), naturally antimicrobial, antistatic, stain-resistant and, incidentally, very well tolerated by allergy sufferers. We recommend that you regularly air the blanket well.

    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.
