Re: Return of the hemp gi?

Taken from Hemp Defined:

Hemp fiber possesses properties similar to other bast fibers (flax, kenaf, jute and ramie) and excels in fiber length, strength, durability, absorbency, antimildew and antimicrobial properties.
I thought the last little bit was worth noting considering how much we sweat in our dogi.

With as much hemp comes out of the East Im suprised it isnt a more obvious choice than cotton?
