Cotton requires a ton of pesticides and uses much more water to grow. Hemp enriches the soil where it grows while cotton does not. Hemp fabrics are also stronger, more durable and absorbent than cotton. This makes the fiber to retain its color better than cotton or any other fabric. 0 Login to Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp hempbarn32 4 Questions 39 Answers 0 Best Answers 79 Points View Profile hempbarn32 2020-06-26T20:36:04-04:00Added an answer on June 26, 2020 at 8:36 pm After reading more about cotton vs hemp, I might still prefer cotton, it just has that softness to it. Unless they have or came up with hemp cotton blend fabric to give it that comfortable feeling. 0 Login to Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Abigail 2 Questions 42 Answers 0 Best Answers 84 Points View Profile Abigail 2020-06-26T20:08:09-04:00Added an answer on June 26, 2020 at 8:08 pm clothes produced using hemp fibers are as comfortable and soft as clothes made up of cotton fibers. You can see that cotton clothes get softer with every wash which gives you a very nice feeling wearing them but this is because cotton fibers break and lost their durability every time you wash them. Hemp fibers, on the other hand, are as soft and comfortable as cotton but are more durable and strong compared to cotton because the process of breaking and getting ragged with washing or wearing happens at a slower rate. That’s the reason hemp clothes show more durability than those of cotton. 0 Login to Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp CrayM 0 Questions 163 Answers 0 Best Answers 342 Points View Profile CrayM 2020-05-05T15:37:25-04:00Added an answer on May 5, 2020 at 3:37 pm I wouldn’t necessarily say, better. It is “better” in some ways since it is more absorbent and durable, when compared to cotton. But, cotton is much softer and a more comfortable material to wear since it can stretch more and isn’t as rough as hemp material. 0 Login to Reply Share Share Share on Facebook Share on Twitter Share on LinkedIn Share on WhatsApp Leave an answerCancel replyYou must login or register to add a new answer.
