Hemp sheets

I now use vintage hemp sheets for bedding and towels, it all started when I was staying with one of my suppliers in Transylvania and they were explaining to me the benefits of hemp sheets so I thought that I just had to try! The advantage of sleeping on these sheets apart from the fact that they are beautiful and entirely natural is that hemp fabric acts acts as a tempertaure regulator. Hemp is a fibrous cloth, with hollw stems and because of this absorbs moisture. Hemp sheets also make brilliant towels-swaddling yourself in these 100-200 year old hand woven fabric is wonderful , I now take them to the Turkish baths , wrapping myself in one of these sheets and lying on the rest beds for 10 minutes makes a perfect end to the bathing experience!
