Who knew there was such a variety of hemp hats? I certainly didn’t until I was doing my research for this post. But it makes sense, as hemp is one of the most versatile natural materials available when it comes to the diversity of products it can be used for, from food to body lotion, shoes, and more.
You’ll find a lot of hemp products on UniGuide because it’s such a superstar sustainable material. It can be grown easily without using pesticides, insecticides, or fungicides. Naturally antimicrobial, hemp is a great fiber to be used in hats, shoes, clothing, and even underwear because it’s breathable and it doesn’t hold on to odors. Another perk: it’s naturally resistant to ultraviolet light, which means it doesn’t fade easily, and it will protect your skin from UV rays. And one last thing about this miracle fiber: like your favorite pair jeans, hemp fabric gets softer with age.
So, without further ado, here are some awesome hemp hats.
