2. Bliss

Fabric content:  55%hemp/45%organic cotton, 55% hemp/45% tencel and 100% organic cotton.  GOTS certified.

Hemp is naturally anti-bacterial and resistant to mold growth, so it stays fresh-smelling even in damp, humid conditions. Plus the excellent insulating properties of hemp fibers also mean they will keep you warm in cold weather too.  Hemp is grown without pesticides or herbicides and is the strongest fiber known to man.

Tencel is made from wood pulp cellulose.  It offers a unique combination of the most desirable properties of man made and natural fibers: soft as silk, strong as polyester, cool as linen, warm as wool and as absorbent as cotton.
