Tightly woven hemp in canvas and twill makes beautiful slipcovers. The look is similar to linen but I find it has more character and wears better.
Hemp Canvas, 11 oz. color Natural
This is a strong, tightly woven canvas in 100% hemp with the look and feel of slubby linen. I love its rustic beauty and undyed creamy white color. After washed, this fabric takes on a wonderful floppy drape and allover softly crumpled appearance, no hard wrinkles like cotton canvas. Very good coverage over light to medium colors. Shrinkage: 3 to 4″ on a one yard length and 2 to 3″ on the width.
This hemp fabric is perfect in every way for a washable, long wearing slipcover. Woven tightly with fine yarns, which creates a flat surface and supple drape. It’s less grainy than the heavier, rustic hemp fabrics. I LOVE the natural taupe color — it’s just the right shade of oatmeal. Shrinkage: 3 to 4″ on a one yard length and 2 to 3″ on the width.
A denim-like fabric in 100% hemp that feels supple, floppy and soft like washed linen. Gorgeous!! The twill weave and slubby texture gives this fabric so much character. You will love the undyed creamy white color. Good coverage, however, high contrast upholstery fabric might show through. Shrinkage: 3 to 4″ on a one yard length and 2 to 3″ on the width.
