Hempest is a store which sells not only hemp fashion and accessories, but clothing made out of many kinds of renewable materials. One example is the Bell Sleeve Turtleneck seen above, made of 40% Modal, 35% Alpaca and 25% Wool. Modal is an natural fabric made out of cellulose fibre with the hygroscopicity (moisture absorption) of cotton and the luster of silk. The sleeveless top below is 55% hemp and 45% silk.
Besides their online store, Hempest has retail stores in Boston, Northampton, Vermont and Santa Barbara.
