Hemptex Introduces New Fiber Blends

Hemp Textiles International Corp. (Hemptex), Bellingham, Wash., has introduced two new hemp fiber blends in its designer wovens for Spring 2002.The HemPop collection includes fabrics in a blend of Cantiva® true hemp fibers and recycled polyester from PET beverage bottles. Included in the line are 4.5-ounce supple shirting in bright and iridescent colors, bottom-weight twill and textured weaves in tone-on-tone cool neutrals and 9-ounce weather-worn slubby denim."The comfort and raw beauty of hemp fiber combines with the moisture-wicking and performance of polyester, creating a strong blend match," said Nancy Williams, vice president, design and development.The Vision collection comprises fabrics in 6- to 8-ounce blends of Cantiva hemp and spun silk, including bouclweeds in a range of colors from acid off-brights to subtle retro melang#44; rustic lightweight denim and a number of spring basics."Hemp adds structure and strength to the blend, while the spun silk adds body and extra softness," said Williams. "The hand and drape we have achieved is phenonmenal."
