The lush fabric possesses a wool-like softness but without the itchiness or the actual wool, of course.

As this is a slight departure from our normal offerings, we thought we'd let our partner Ecolution speak in their own words:
In our 16 years of doing business, ECOLUTION® has stood out as a company that has refused to compromise its core values of real sustainability in every step of our manufacturing. Whether it is organic cultivation, chemical free processing, eco-friendly dyes and finishes, or the way that we treat our employees, ECOLUTION® does not allow any negative practices into the chain of production and distribution of our products.
During our 16 years, we have been exclusively dedicated to our vertically integrated operations in Eastern Europe, making products only from hemp, and hemp flax blends. We have resisted the temptation to move our production to China, a path that most of our competition has followed, because there is little or no way to ensure that Chinese production is being carried out in a socially or environmentally responsible manner. We refuse to sacrifice our values for lower costs.
As of this autumn of 2006, ECOLUTION® has released a line of organic cotton products made in India. We have decided to move forward with our partners in India because they have proven to be among the most stellar, environmentally and socially responsible manufacturers not only in the region, but that we have found, period.
