Hemp is more durable and resistant to mildew than pure cotton. It’s also more absorbent: hemp fiber can absorb 150% of its weight in water (as opposed to cotton, which can absorb about 100%). Yet hemp bath towels are difficult to find.
Grass Roots Natural sells a set of hemp towels, including a bath towel, hand towel and face towel for $45. The towels are made of a 55% hemp and 45% cotton terry cloth fabric.
