Fabulous Fabrics: Organic Cotton Flannel From Hemp Traders

organic cotton flannel plaid fabricSo there I was, looking through the HempTraders website.  Ah yes, I said to myself, they have all kinds of hemp and hemp blends.  Hemp knits, hemp stretch fabrics, hemp linen and muslin, hemp canvas, and even hemp / silk blends and satins.  They have hemp upholstery fabric too.

Some of the fabrics are as low as $7.25 per yard, some as high as $20, and as I’ve come to expect with hemp, I’m seeing mostly solid colors.  HempTraders has a wider variety of fabrics all in one place than some of the other online shops I’ve covered, and the photographs of the fabrics are exceedingly clear.

“But what’s a specialty weave?” I thought, and clicked on that link.

Now I am obsessed with the idea of sewing up little boy pajamas.

At $9 per yard for a 51″ wide fabric, the warm and fuzzy goodness of this organic cotton plaid flannel fabric cannot be denied.  It’s apparently the first 100% organic cotton fabric that HempTraders has sold, and I think they made an excellent choice.

I’m also eyeing the hemp/organic cotton blend lightweight muslin for quilting project, such as strip-pieced or foundation pieced blocks sewn onto a muslin foundation.  I’ve often thought of just using old sheets for something like this if I do it for myself, but if I’m making a project for someone else I get skittish about recycling fabrics (ingrained consumer culture?  fear of rejection?  I don’t know).  At $7.50 per yard for 57″ wide pieced of this muslin, it might be a more workable choice.

For these two, hemp basics, or other eco-friendly fabrics, check out HempTraders.

  2. I am wondering if you carry “organic” flannel (undyed) as I am looking to use it for a castor oil pack as recommended by my naturopathic doctor.
