Hemp yarn is naturally anti-microbial and extremely durable - these cloths last for years. Along with using them to bathe, we also like to use them around the house for general cleaning as they create no plastic waste and don't harbor bacterial like synthetic sponges do. Made by a family business in Washington State, hemp yarn is a welcome alternative to pesticide-heavy cotton and synthetic sponges. Try one - we're sure you'll appreciate the many benefits of these lovely wash cloths. Available in natural or white.
