prAna Hemp for a Cozy Fall + Winter

*This post was created in collaboration with prAna. All opinions are 100% mine.

If you've been following along my journey for awhile now, you know that I am a big fan of prAna and using our dollars to purchase from brands who have a mission, a purpose and whose values are as similar to mine as a business can be. When prAna reached out to talk all things hemp, I was of course intrigued because prAna continues to create and also lead the way in the mindful business practices that I value and would love to see other clothing companies, especially, adopt in the very near future.

So you may be wondering what from the hemp line of clothing that I chose. The Pammy Beanie (pictured here in Dusty Evergreen) stood out to me and here's why. I always have an issue wearing Winter hats (the kind meant to keep your head warm in this biting New England cold) because the material may bother my ears. Sometimes my ears itch when something is too wooly. Sometimes my ears are very irritated by the sounds of the fibers from hats made from synthetic materials... you get the picture. So why not try a hemp blend? This hat is created from a recycled blend of polyester and hemp... and it's, no lie, the perfect fabric for my head. It has a cotton feel but it's as heavy as I would hope it'd be. Of course, they are creating more than hats using their hemp sourced from China, grown as organically as possible. Hemp is safer for farmers to grow and preserve the health of the land because the crop requires no chemical pesticides or fertilizers to be sustained.


The materials that prAna uses to make their clothing will no doubt leave you feeling good about your purchase while also feeling good about how you look. In addition to Hemp, prAna uses Organic cotton, recycled wool, recycled polyester, and responsible down, just some of the notable materials that prAna has lined up to create fair trade, responsible and sustainable made apparel for men and women. Respect for the planet and its people- I'm on board with that.
