In North Carolina, Bear Fiber has created socks from hemp for a prototype project meant to demonstrate that “Hemp Makes it Better.” 

In partnership with expert knitters at the Catawba Valley Community College’s Manufacturing Solutions Center in Conover, Bear Fiber has developed in a method that creates a “stronger, cotton-like hemp fiber” so you can “treat your feet.” The method combines help with organic cotton and recycled nylon-6 fiber. 

Bear Fiber has been promoting hemp fiber for fashion since the 1990s, when they were also helping develop the organic cotton market. The company’s goal now is to help grow the American Hemp Fiber Industry by developing a commercially sustainable market to support farmers, processors, yarn spinners, textile manufacturers and the apparel industry in the United States.
