“I know of no restorative of heart, body, and soul more effective against hopelessness than the restoration of the Earth.”
CRAiLAR® (fiber made from hemp)
CRAiLAR® Fibers are the building blocks for the first truly sustainable yarn in the apparel industry. Fibers are processed through a patented enzymatic bath created in collaboration with the National Research Council of Canada. Prior to the bath, the fibers of up to a meter in length are cut to the desired staple length rivaling the very best long line cotton. These fibers then enter specialized processing equipment which turns the straw-like fibers into soft, white fibers similar to organic cotton.The expected result is a yarn with the same warmth and feel of organic cotton, but with characteristics, such as tensile strength, that organic cotton simply can never achieve. As every step of the process can be certified organic, CRAiLAR® Fibers become the first truly sustainable yarn in the apparel industry.
