Hemp

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 Fabric for Slipcovers

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.

Box Pleat Hemp Slipcover Skirt

Hemp Canvas 11 oz Taupe

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.

Hemp Cotton Poly Canvas, 11 oz. Natural

This hemp blend canvas is a very good alternative to linen-cotton. It’s a beefy medium weight made with 45% hemp/ 40% Cotton / 15% Recycled Polyester. I like that it has more texture than a regular cotton canvas and features slubs and nubs like linen. There is a right and wrong side to this cloth. Easy to sew on a home sewing machine. Shrinkage: 1″ on a one yard length and 2″ on the width.

Hemp Twill For Slipcovers

Hemp Twill 12 oz Natural

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.
