Ariel Schwarz at Fast Company - using Naturally Advanced Technologies' CRAILAR® fabric technology, Hanesbrands may one day soon switch from cotton to hemp in its underwear. What a wonderful economic incentive that will provide for legalizing industrial hemp farming in the US!

Portland, Oregon-based Naturally Advanced Technologies has proven that Crailar Fabric Technology can turn the normally rough hemp into a material that is as soft as cotton. Hanesbrands likes the idea so much that it is allowing Naturally Advanced Technologies to retrofit its dyeing equipment with the company's technology to test if hemp fabric can be used in regular production.
