Organic 100% Hemp Bedding Set of 4: Review of Hemp Sheets And The Benefits of Using Them

comfortable bed
Photo by Annie Spratt

Getting a good nights sleep is very important. We all know that having a good mattress is the most important part. We must also have good sheets. After all they surround you all night long!

Choosing good bedding can be a difficult decision, as there are many choices out there. You need to think about what your sleeping needs consist of when deciding which sheets to buy.

Do you sweat a lot at night? If you do, then you need sheets that have a great wicking ability to help keep you dry and comfortable. These sheets also need to “repel” odors and not get mildewy, otherwise you need to change your bedding almost daily. I am a night sweater, so I understand these needs!

Do you have allergies to any fabrics or dyes? If you do, most linens will give you issues. Finding the right one can be quite the battle.

If you have these issues or just want a set a bed sheets that are made from hemp, then your search is over, Organic 100% Hemp Bedding is just what you are looking for!

About Organic 100% Hemp Bedding

Organic 100% Hemp Bedding, is the perfect choice for any sleeping needs. There are many reasons to choose hemp bed sheets aside from just comfort and a great nights rest, here is a list of the wonderful attributes of using Organic 100% Hemp Bedding.

  • Hemp cloth has wicking abilities, which is the ability of absorbing moisture and evaporating it into the environment.
  • Hemp, being naturally antibacterial, helps to protect against dust mites, bacteria and fungi.
  • Hemp has a pleasant natural aroma.
  • Unbleached, and undyed, exhibits it’s natural color, being 100% organic with no added chemicals or dyes, they are complimentary to any bed.
  • Hemp bed linens is especially loved by allergy sufferers and is often purchased by parents for their children.

I found the best deal for Organic 100% Hemp Bedding on Amazon, and I have provided a link for each size, for easier shopping.

Different Sets

Each set contains different pieces depending on the size you order. NOTE: there is not a fitted sheet in this set.

Why Choose Hemp Bedding Over Cotton?

Organic 100% Hemp Bedding is made in Ukraine. It is grown by a farming cooperative, and is hand spun, the whole process includes no usage of pesticides, fertilizers, insecticides, or herbicides, nor do they use harsh chemical dyes, or any kind of irritants or allergens in the process.

Hemp is naturally antibacterial and anti fungal, so it will not easily mildew, or hold odors. Also, it has the best wicking abilities to keep you dryer throughout the night.

Hemp fibers are longer and stronger than cotton fibers and last longer. They will not stretch or become out of shape. Hemp is more absorbent and better insulating than cotton.

Alas, growing hemp is leaves less of an environmental footprint. Everything we do leave an environmental footprint, it just depends on the severity of the footprint, as to the impact on the environment. Hemp is by far easier on the environment than cotton. Cotton takes more water, and harmful chemicals and pesticides during the growing and processing.

So in the end it is better to choose sheets made from hemp fibers as opposed to cotton.

I would love to hear what you think about hemp bedding. If you have tried it, or even if you would just like to. Please feel free to leave a comment or question below and I will get back to you as soon as possible.

As always, thank you for reading my review.

Hemp And Alternative Packaging For The Holidays: Wrapping Paper Is Too Taxing On The Environment

Happy Holidays to all! May the season be bright and cheery for all!    Hemp Christmas Bulb

Gift giving and receiving gifts is the best part of the Holidays for sure!

What happens to all the pretty bows, ribbons, and wrapping paper at the end? If we recycle them, it shouldn’t be a problem right? That’s what we tell our selves anyhow.Christmas Gifts Under The Tree

The truth of the matter is that wrapping paper is not the best for recycling because of the heavy inks, glitters, and foils, etc… All the pretty decor on the paper makes a sludge that requires even more chemicals to process it, and most recyclers do not want to deal with it.

“I’ll just burn mine.” Is the next thought, well, think again, the inks and foils and such, also create carcinogens that are very harmful to our lungs! In other words, that’s a big NO! NO! I have to admit that for many years, I burned my wrapping paper, not knowing that I was putting my family at risk.

So then what can we do to lessen the blow to the environment and still have beautiful gifts to exchange? There are quite a few options out there actually.

Reusable Hemp Gift Bags

There are so many to choose from! I found some of the best prices on Amazon. They are my first stop for most items, as I find some of the best deals on Amazon.

Like these RUSPEPA Merry Christmas Gift Bag w/ Hemp Handle & Tags, it is a pack of 6 bags that vary in sizes selling for $11.99. These are ideal for almost any gift, and can be reused for years to come, simply put them away with your holiday decorations, and break them out every year.

For those little awkward items that are a pain to wrap, DierCosy 10Pcs Christmas Sack Gift Bag Linen Hemp Gift Bag, this is the perfect gift bag to use instead of wrapping paper. I find it quite handy that you can wash them as well if they get dirty, it makes for fresh gifting. For these 10 bags you will only pay $3.56, and it comes with free shipping as well.

For the medium to larger gifts you can use CleverDelights’ 10 packs of 12″ x 20″ Red Burlap Bags with Natural Jute Drawstring. With being priced at $22.99 for 10 bags, that is very affordable. These bags are a beautiful red, and will look stunning under your Tree!

These are some wonderful alternatives to wrapping paper. By using them we could cut down a great deal of waste during the holidays, and save some trees in the process.

Each year 4 million tons of shopping bags and wrapping paper overload our landfills. Buying a set or to of these bags could help ease a lot of the burden on the landfills during the holidays.

Gift Wrapping Made of Hemp And Other Recycled Materials

If you just have to have wrapped gifts under the tree there are some wonderful wrapping papers that are easier to recycle, and are very attractive as well. Here are a few that I found on Amazon while shopping around.

One choice of paper to help set the holiday mood is Kraft Classic Wrapping Paper Set. This gift wrapping paper is high quality, thick wrapping paper. This paper can be used for crafts, table coverings, and other creative ideas as well. Being multi functional and attractive, makes it well worth the purchase!

You get 6 rolls that are 30″ by 10′, for $19.99. And there is a variety of sets to choose from. The paper is not only easier on recyclers, but is made from recycled material as well.

Ankuka Kraft Christmas Wrapping Paper Set is similar in quality to the Kraft wrapping paper. It is thick and of high quality as well. Ankuka offers 5 rolls of paper for $18.99 each roll contains 30″ by 10′ of paper, so the rolls are the same size, you just get one less for a dollar less. I guess it depends on how much paper you feel you need.

Christmas Tree Kraft Paper Hanging Tags Xmas Present Gift Labels provides you with 200 tags with strings for $10.95. That is enough tags for at least two years, maybe three depending on how big your gifting circle is.

Tree Kraft paper is made with recycled materials and hemp, the stings are made of hemp fibers. There is a wonderful assortment for adding more diversity of holiday cheer under the tree.

Decorate Your Packages With Bows And Ribbons You Make

Ribbons and bows are not recyclable on an industrial outlook, but you can reuse those little buggers every year if you save them and apply a bit of tape. Aside from that throw them in the trash, because they clog up the recycling system.

There are several styles of hemp ribbons that you can make bows from and tie your packages closed with too. Amazon has a few that I found to be fitting and attractive for the holidays.

Holiday Burlap Ribbon Roll Jute Red Fish Silk Hemp Rope is one that will make some very beautiful bows, and will effectively tie a package closed. The price is $4.99 plus $3.98 for shipping and you get 32.8′ of ribbon. The ribbon can be reused just like the bags, all you have to do is put them away with your decorations each year.

If you find that ribbon is too thick or you want to add more flare to your packages as well, there are other ribbons to choose from. One product is Jillson Roberts 6 Spool, it is 1/4″ wide by 50′ and is available in 16 colors. You will pay $14.87, and if you are a Prime member, you will get free shipping on this item.

Buying these ribbons allows you to put a personal touch in the beautifying of your gifts. In turn, this makes the gift have more meaning to the recipient.

Our Gifts Can Still Look Beautiful With Recycled Materials

Gift Decorations

With the ever growing rate of consumers, we need to start being more mindful of our purchases, and this is all part of it. The holidays create a huge amount of waste for our landfills. And if not properly recycled, extra work on the recycling factories that have to sort out our mess.

Reusable gift bags are probably one of the best ways to give gifts in my opinion. Not only do you still get the pretty outside package, but you also have something to carry your gifts home in as well. And next year, you can reuse the same gift bags over. In the long run it saves money too.Christmas Gift Bag

The bags can be very pretty and made for any occasion, not just Christmas and Hanukkah. You can find them made from hemp cloth to hemp paper, and other recycled materials, and they are a perfect substitute for wrapping paper, and you can buy a combination of styles so your gifts do not all look the same under the tree.

I don’t think it’s too much to ask for us to use reusable gift bags and wrapping paper that is easier to recycle. Leaving less of an environmental footprint from the holidays couldn’t hurt.

Using less wrapping paper will definitely help, as most wrapping paper is made from trees.

I know a lot of people are wondering why I have not mentioned the purchasing of live tree versus fake trees. This is my opinion on that. The average Christmas tree comes from a lot and is farmed, much like vegetables, only trees.

It is not like we have our entire population out cutting their own trees, ravaging the forests every year. That is what the paper makers do daily, not the families enjoying their Christmas with a tree once a year.

Having a real tree or a fake one is a matter of choice in my opinion, and no one should be scrutinized for their choice. Be careful with either tree type, both can be fire hazards if not cared for properly, that is my only opinion on which Christmas tree is best.

If you are in need of alternative gift packaging this year, follow any of the product links above and take your pick. I found some really nice offers for some quality products.

Let me know what you think about the products I have found and my review. Feel free to leave a comment below and I will get back to you as soon as possible.

As always, thank you for reading my review.

Dash Hemp Santa Cruz: My Review of Their Hemp Made Clothes That Are Also Fashionable

Hemp At Sunrise

When you mention hemp fabric, most people think of coarse and rough textures like burlap and canvas or even rope. All of these items can be and have been made from Industrial Hemp Fibers, so it is understandable.

hemp burlap sacks                         Hemp rope

For many years it seemed that the softest fabric that could be made from hemp fiber was jeans or canvas, and Let’s face it, theses are not the softest of materials.

What would you say if I told you that you can get hemp clothes that are soft and comfortable? Well brace yourself, it is very true! With the innovation and determination of some clothing manufacturers, we now have softer more luxurious items being made from Industrial Hemp fibers.

I am glad that times are changing, Industrial Hemp might just be the perfect material to make clothes from. It has the best air flow and absorption rate than most other fibers, this is due to hemp’s fiber having a hollow core. Not to mention that it is one of the strongest fibers known to man. It doesn’t wear out over time, it breaks in more instead.


Qualities of the Hemp Fiber

Transfer Qualities

Hemp transfers and absorbs moisture better than most other fibers.

 

Anti- UV Properties (Via: Dash Hemp Santa Cruz)


 

I have discovered this Hemp clothing manufacturing company, called Dash Hemp Santa Cruz, out of Santa Cruz, California. You can buy clothes for men and women on their site, and they have a line of 100% Hemp bed sheets as well.

Dash Hemp Santa Cruz

Dash Hemp Santa Cruz has been making clothes for 21 years now, since 1997, and they have some very nice apparel. The hemp clothing company was founded by Richard Dash in 1997 after he attended a WHEE Festival in Oregon. He decided then, that hemp was the absolute best fiber for clothing.

If you’re looking for a unique fashion with the best quality fabric you can find, then look no further, Dash Hemp Santa Cruz is your clothing shop.

Comfort, value, and style & innovation are the three main goals of Dash Hemp. Creating a line of quality upscale hemp clothing is not easy.

COMFORT- When you first put on Dash Hemp clothes, you know you made the right choice. They are comfortable and do not cause any kind of itchy reactions. When it is warm, they keep you cool feeling and wick away moisture to keep you dry as well. And then, when it is cool, they keep you warm.

VALUE- The clothes last for a very long time, it is not uncommon to hear someone say they have been wearing a Dash Hemp T-shirt or Jeans for years, they just last and last. They don’t pill (get the fuzz balls from the fiber strands coming out of the fabric) and don’t stretch out after years of wearing, or shrink up after washing and drying.

STYLE & INNOVATION- With offering hemp fabrics that are soft and comfortable straight from the manufacturer, that alone shows the innovation this company has to offer. Then to match the comfort with style that can be either casual or semi formal as well, that just makes them top of the line in the Hemp Fabric Manufacturers.

Dash Hemp challenges you to search away for a clothing company that even compares to theirs, how they do what they do and what they do. In their words, “Surf away. You will emphatically not find any other company in America that does what we donothing close in terms of detailing fabrications and our unique looks. Our clothing is transformational.”

Dash Hemp has a wonderful customer service department, very helpful and friendly! They have a 21-day return policy, and 100% refund policy if you are not satisfied with your purchase.


Hemp Made Womens Clothing You Must Have

When you want to look stylish and be comfortable at the same time, Dash Hemp offers just that with their line of hoodies and long sleeve T-shirts.

These two items are a blend of 55% industrial hemp and 45% organic cotton, and they have stylish comfort written all over them! Being built to last, you will be able to enjoy them for years to come as well.

You have different colors to choose from for each style, and they come in sizes X-Small to X-Large. Their prices are very good for quality clothing. The woman’s long sleeve T-shirt is priced at $44, and the hoodies are $89.

 

woman's hemp hoodie                                        woman's over-sized long sleeve T-shirt

 

When you visit Dash Hemp’s website, you will see there a quite a few items to choose from to expand your wardrobe with.


Dash Hemp’s Line of Mens Clothing

Fashion for men is a little more simple or basic, than for women, I guess you could say. Let’s face it, for the most part guys want easy shopping and more simple styles. Comfort and style are still important, and that is exactly what Richard Dash knows, being a “guy”.

You will find at least one “must have” item for sure in this line of men’s clothing. All the items are durable, comfortable, and attractive. And the prices are great as well!

T-shirts range from $25 for the basic white Rocky’s hemp T-shirt, to $49 for a long sleeved T-shirt (not shown). With two brands of blue jeans to choose from, both priced at $99, and either would look great with the Camp Shirt selling for $79.

Head on over to Dash Hemp’s website and see more men’s fashions! Just follow the link above, you’re sure to find either something for yourself or a great gift!


100% Hemp Bedding

Sheet sets too!

All natural colors, no dyes or perfumes or anything! They are perfect for those who suffer from allergies as they are naturally hypoallergenic.

100% Hemp Pillow Case                        100% Hemp Sheet Set With 2 Pillow Cases

Also, great for those with night sweats, as they naturally wick moisture from your skin to help keep you dryer. And being naturally antibacterial and anti fungal, also helps with the night sweats. These sheets will not hold odors, or grow any unwanted molds or mildews.


Hemp Clothes Can Be Made Fashionable and Comfortable

Hemp Men's Button Down            Woman's Hemp Ming Vest           Men's Hemp Leaf Print T-Shirt

Not all hemp clothes look like burlap or canvas, this we have definitely learned.

Dash Hemp Santa Cruz set out to prove this in 1997, and has taken the lead on hemp manufactured clothing. Don’t take just my word for this, click a link to their site and see what their customers have to say.

You will find a bunch of 5 star ratings, and very happy customers.

I would love to hear what you think about Dash Hemp Santa Cruz’s clothing for men and women. Please feel free to leave a comment below and I will get back to you as soon as possible.

As always, thank you for reading my review.

Hemp In Nepal-The Hemp Manufacture: Hemp Kurtha

Cannabis Leaf on Hemp Material Background

Hemp fibers are some of the strongest fibers known to man. There are many items that can be made from the fibers of hemp, from rope and twine, to shirts and underwear.

When these fibers are used for fabrics, the material lasts substantially longer than that made of cotton or other synthetic fabrics. Instead of wearing out and getting holes, they just break-in more and become more comfortable.

So that favorite pair of jeans, that always ends up with a hole in the worst area, would be a thing of the past. Your favorite jeans would just become more and more comfortable for much longer. Thus, saving you money in the long run.

Hemp fabric has the natural ability to wick moisture from the skin, making this ideal for making clothing items. There is also the bonus of the material being natural anti-fungal and anti-bacterial, which means no moldy mildew build-up, and no orders either.

It kind of makes you wonder why hemp is not already in our clothes that we buy every day, not even combined with cotton.

A Little About Hemp In Nepal-The Hemp Manufacture

For years Hemp In Nepal’s goods were only offered in Nepal, if you did not visit there, you did not get any of their hemp goods. With recent trade changes, they have begun to expand their sales to the world offering an array of quality hemp products. Their products include:

  • Hemp Bags
  • Hemp Clothes
  • Hemp Laptop BagsCompany Logo 'Hemp In Nepal'
  • Hemp Hats

This company makes some of the timeless classic hemp clothes, and accessories that you would expect to see, and in a large variety. All the items are hand made and of high quality! The items offered range in styles that are casual or formal and are eco-friendly.

Hemp In Nepal-The Hemp Manufacture is a privately owned manufacturer, exporter, wholesaler, and retailer. The hemp they use is grown in the Himalayan regions of the Nepal, all other materials are sourced from Nepal as well. This is to help support their local economy. That is their mission even. (This article is aimed at retailers, take note of the quantity limit of each item.)

The customer service is nice, they help in any way, and if you need to return your item it is simple, you just fill out the return information and print your shipping label and mail your package back. You can contact them as well if needed. In all they are a very pleasant company to deal with.

Hemp Kurtha

What is a Kurtha you ask? Well it is a long sleeve shirt, it can be a button-up or pull-over that buttons at the top. We normally call them dress shirts (button-ups) and long sleeve T-shirts.

The Hemp Kurtha is the most popular worldwide for the ease of transition from formal to casual. They are made from the finest quality hemp grown in the Himalayan regions of Nepal, and they sell for $18 per shirt if you buy a quantity of 20 or more.

Hemp Kurtha Hemp Button-Up

These shirts, in the button-up style, can be worn as dress shirts, tucked in with a suit jacket and tie, or casual wear, untucked and loosely buttoned. The pull-over can be tucked in with slacks and pass as formal, or can be worn untucked and unbuttoned and be totally casual.

If you want to offer a classy shirt in your store for a decent price this is the item for you to order now!

There are many items to display in your store for very reasonable prices. You can easily mark them up to make a profit and still have them affordable. That’s one important thing I noticed about Hemp In Nepal-The Hemp Manufacture’s wholesale prices.

Comfort and Style That Is Affordable

The Hemp Kurtha offers comfort and style that is for sure! They are lightweight and breathable shirts, being made from hemp gives them an unmatchable quality and durability as well.

As stated above hemp fabric has the natural ability to wick moisture from the skin, is naturally anti-fungal and anti-bacterial. Hemp is the perfect fiber to make clothing from.
