What is SHEMP?

SHEMP delivers a new generation of natural fiber blended yarn that addresses the Call-To-Action for alternative fibers both by consumers and our planet. We want to play a part in revitalizing the textile industry. The inconvenient truth is that this industry is one of the world’s dirtiest, second to the oil industry. We don’t want to think where we’ll be in 30 years if textiles continue to wreak havoc on our environment. Instead, we’re imagining a world where all textiles are sustainably produced – and that starts with the yarn needed to create them.
