Terry and Jersey. When I bought hemp this way they were very soft like cotton. These look and feel like spandex. I have no idea what I am going to do with it.

100% bamboo works great for making clothing - shirts, baby pants, etc.

Re: bamboo

The terry would probably make nice and stretchy flats!

I have a baby blanket made out of 100 bamboo jersey and it was so nice for when my DS was little. So easy to swaddle with that super stretchy blanket! ANd very thin for the hot summer weather!
