Fabric made using 50% or higher of hemp will block more UV rays than non-hemp fabrics. Your baby will love bamboo hemp because of its soft feel and drape, but you might love it because it is hypoallergenic, absorbent, fast drying, and naturally anti-bacterial (less washing and less smelling).
Bamboo is thermally regulating (like cashmere), it keeps you warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. It needs no ironing; just hang your clothing and the wrinkles fall out.
Aside from the above mentioned reasons, one might also be persuaded by the fabric’s legendary strength. In fact, hemp is the most durable of natural fibers: 3.3 times more durable than cotton.
Our hemp fleece fabric is in its natural cream-colored state, and has antibacterial and antimicrobial properties, making it a perfect texture for your cloth inserts.

It is also great for hoodies, jackets, sweatpants, blankets, wraps, leg warmers, skirts, pajamas, or any other clothing that would require a heavier, but soft, knit fabric.

All natural fiber knits will shrink further, it is recommended to pre-wash whole yardage at the setting that your finished stitched item will be washed.
I recommend ordering more than one yard at a time to account for the shrinkage (natural fibers shrink). Percentage shrink may differ depends on washing machine and dryer settings, but 10% shrinkage is not uncommon.
Prewash the fabric before cutting out your pattern. Wash your fabric more than one time before cutting and you will have a fantastic, very absorbent, perfect end result.
I suggest washing and drying it alone the first time, the fuzzy side tends to shed.
