Anti-Microbial hemp fiber explained: Under magnification hemp fiber has air pockets within the fiber which allows more air to pass through and thus not inhibit a stagnant air environment allowing the fiber to breath. Third party antibacterial activity lab results have found Hemp fiber to have a higher level of resistance than cotton as well as a higher level of moisture dissipation.
