U.S. Hemp Fiber: The Kentucky Cloth Project


So few can show us sustainable fiber systems better than the Earth-centric folks at Fibershed.  They are a fantastic wealth of knowledge and experience on improving current fiber models, or in their words, developing "regenerative textile systems that are based on carbon farming, regional manufacturing, and public education."

 

U.S. Hemp Fiber: The Kentucky Cloth Project

February 26, 2017


Not only are they doing a lot with hemp in Kentucky (below) and Colorado, they're also teaching their followers about sustainable dyeing methods – like using mushrooms – and how to properly source animal fibers like wool and alpaca. All the while, they manage to churn out some interesting stories, and in this case, some nice visuals on hemp fiber processing from the heart of America. Featured in the video and banner above is Mike Lewis, executive director the veteran group Growing Warriors and a proud Kentucky hemp farmer.
