19. Hemp fabrics are wonderful.
I sent for some swatches once and was blown away by how gorgeous they were.

Pure hemp can be any weight and texture, depending on how it's woven.

Hemp/Organic cotton is as soft and absorbant as the finest cotton you'll ever find.

Hemp/silk makes a gorgeous, light, satiny fabric that would do a wedding gown justice.

Here are a couple of my favorite hemp fabric sites:
http://www.hemptraders.com /
http://www.aurorasilk.com/index.html
http://www.rawganique.com/index.htm

My wardrobe is very simple and whenever I need a new item, I try to find it in hemp. Hemp clothing choices are still limited and expensive, so eventually I want to just buy fabric and have some items made to fit. They'll outlive me, for sure.
