hemp knit bath mat
Hemp bath mat by linen knit Kenland.
Hemp is a large type of hemp, and is in the same group as linen. Therefore, it has excellent water absorption and dries quickly. In addition, hemp has antibacterial and antibacterial properties, so it also has a deodorizing function. It is also said to be a particularly durable fiber, making it the perfect material for bath mats.
Many people may have an image of a rough texture that irritates hemp, but it uses high-quality yarns that are spun at a high level, giving it a soft and smooth texture. Because it is a flat knitted fabric that uses plenty of thick thread, it has a moderate thickness and high water absorption, making it comfortable to the touch.
It has enough water absorption even if it is used by multiple people, and it dries quickly, so It feels good when you step on it with bare feet.
Bath mats can be difficult to wash if they have a lining or are too thick or heavy, but this bath mat is as thick as a thick towel. It's also nice that it's easy to wash in the washing machine. For many of you, this is the first time you have used a mat made of knit material, but I would like you to give it a try.
A factory specializing in linen knitwear located in Yamagata Prefecture, where the knitting industry is thriving.
Linen is most often used as a woven fabric, and knits (knitted) are rarely seen. Kenland, which has long continued to manufacture collection brand knit products centered on wool, has perfected linen knit technology through years of research, and now specializes in linen knit and produces it as its own brand.
To make linen into a knit, the machines and manufacturing methods are different from those of weaving, so detailed management and accumulation of techniques such as thread making, knitting, and dyeing are required. The finished fabric itself and the suitable use are also different.
Of course, linen's high water absorption, quick-drying, fastness, coolness, and glossy texture of the thread are the same. On the other hand, there are also aspects such as "it is easy to wrinkle" and "it is taut and a little hard at first". The knitted structure of linen knit creates elasticity, does not wrinkle, and has a soft texture.
In addition, unlike wool knits, it can be machine washed. "Linen material x knit technology" has advantages that other combinations do not have.
Since there are various types of knitting, the appearance and stretchability of each are different. Having supported the knit production of collection brands for many years, the development of colors is also attractive.
I think that there are many people who are new to linen knit, but it is a material that I would like you to try once.

[Handling and care]
Hand wash or use a laundry net and use a washing machine. Knitted fabrics become softer with every wash.
Avoid tumble drying as the fabric may shrink or become too soft.
Knitted fabrics become softer with every wash. Linen is a fiber that separates, so there will be dust at first due to the nature of the material, but this is not a problem. Please take the waste that came out.
