Hemp Bedding | Better Planet Peace of Mind
An environmentally-friendly sleep solution.
Following increased consumer demand for more sustainable products, we’re very excited to announce that we are the first major UK bedding retailer to add a range of hemp products to our bedding collection!
Hemp’s sustainable credentials are high
This extraordinary fibre grows in abundance and produces double the fibre yield of cotton per hectare. The plant is naturally repellent to pests meaning fewer pesticides are needed to grow it successfully.
What is it made out of
Hemp uses 30% less water than cotton to grow and 25% less water in the production process. Plus it returns 60-70% of nutrients to the soil, keeping the land better fertilised for the following year’s crop.
The latest super fine quality linen
Whilst hemp might conjure up visions of hippy-style fabrics, this unique fabric creates a very elegant look reminiscent of Irish Linens with a smooth-to-the-touch feel.
As a natural fibre, Hemp is good at absorbing moisture and heat. Meaning it’s a great temperature regulator, keeping you cool in the summer and warm in the winter. What’s more, it has anti-bacterial properties, so it’s a great option for allergy sufferers.
Up to eight times stronger than linen, it is also resistant to UV light so holds colour better.
Comments from some of our Sleep Experts
Sally Hancox, Soak&Sleep Buying Manager said: “Being environmentally conscious doesn’t mean compromising on luxury. Our hemp range isn’t like you’d imagine, it’s super soft, smooth but with a textured hand-feel - similar in texture to our French Linen but even softer, with a superb drape. It’s a true super-fibre and is exceptional at regulating your body temperature, helping you to sleep comfortably all year round - sleeping green never felt so good!”
