Hemp Fiber

Hemp Fiber (Bast Fiber) is a high-yield commercial fiber crop that grows from seed. Hemp stalks are harvested for their fibers and grow on the outside of the plant’s stalk, similar to the bark of a tree. Hemp fibers are advantageous as they are flexible, have low density and abrasiveness, and have mechanical properties comparable to glass fiber. There is also quantitative and qualitative homogeneity from one harvest to the next.

Degummed Hemp Fiber is processed to remove lignin and pectin, so separated fibers are finer, softer, and more absorbent. Size ranges from ½ inch to 5 inches.

Hemp Hurd is derived from the core of the hemp stalks and is also referred to as hemp shives. It looks similar to wood chips. It is porous and absorbent and naturally resistant to mold and bacteria.

Raw Long Hemp Fiber is right from the stalk, non-processed, and uncombed with slight separation of fibers. Fibers range from 24 to 72 inches.

Combed Hemp Fiber, also known as plumber’s hemp, is untwisted and combed. Fiber length ranges from 4-5 inches long.
Typical Applications

Degummed Hemp Fiber is used to spin into yarn as 100% hemp blended with cotton.

Hemp Hurd is an excellent animal bedding for small animals and horses. It is also a natural growing medium for indoor and outdoor gardening.

Raw Long Hemp Fiber is used in various products such as paper, building materials, insulation, twine, stuffing, and rope.

Combed Hemp Fiber is used to make twine, yarn, cordage textiles, paper, and handicrafts. It can be used to help seal pipes.

Packaging Options

The fiber is available in 40ft. and 20 ft. containers, truckloads, or by the bale and shipped internationally.



Sustainable Qualities

Hemp Fiber is considered sustainable because it is a natural and renewable resource that requires minimal processing. Hemp plants are fast-growing and require less water and pesticides than other crops, making them a more eco-friendly alternative to traditional materials. Hemp Fiber is also biodegradable and can be recycled or composted, contributing to a circular economy. Additionally, Hemp Fiber has a variety of applications, from textiles to building materials, which can further reduce the environmental impact of other less sustainable materials.
