Opting for Textile Hemp
*Potential properties of products made with hemp
From Soil to Fibre
Phase 1: Winter Retting
Canadian grown hemp is left in the field after harvest. During the winter, moisture, light, air, bacteria and fungi allow the stem to dissolve, making it easier to separate the fibers.
Phase 2: Decortication
By mechanical separation, the hemp fibers are detached from the core of the stem. The residues of this step, called shives, are used as home insulation and horse bedding.
Phase 3: Refining
At the end of the dehulling process, a mechanical process removes the dust and the chenevotte in order to obtain clean fibers.
Phase 4: Degumming
This optional step consists in treating the fibre with an alkaline solution to remove the pectin. A degummed fibre allows the production of a finer yarn.
Phase 5: Cotonization
From the clean or degummed fiber, we use carding to separate and untangle the remaining fibre bundles. This phase confers technical characteristics adapted to spinning mill equipment.
We grow eco-friendly textile innovation from field to fibre. We create and transform green textile fibres, right here in Canada.
