timothy thank you for updated info on wonderful fabrics!
You're quite welcome. Actually, I got a different garment from Rawganique in the mail today -- hemp/linen pajamas -- and look forward to trying them soon. They seem nicely made, though their XL is more what I'd call L -- better check their sizing charts before ordering.

"SF" - are you in San Francisco? That's my home town!

Re: Hemp Dogi

err...i tot that "Hemp" is always a mistaken victim of the marijuana and very few people want to have something made of hemp on his body?

Well, is this hemp product comfy to wear of?

Hemp is often very misunderstood, yes. Again, marijuana and hemp are the same species, Cannibas sativa, though there are many different breeds of industrial hemp, and they are so different that some argue they are a different species.

I have a lot of hemp clothing (and NO interest at all in marijuana, BTW!). It's a lot like flax linen. In fact, before hemp was banned, "linen" was made either from flax or hemp. I've come to love flax linen -- I'm wearing it as I write this -- because it's so cool and breathable, especially in warm weather. Hemp behaves similarly. I just got some hemp/flax pajamas and am finding them the most comfortable ever, in that I don't get too hot or cool in them in the summer.

Hemp is also the strongest natural fiber. I think that would be important especially for aikido dogis, with all the work we do on our knees.

I haven't had a chance to try hemp martial arts wear for myself yet, but with its advantages of breathability and longwear, I think it'd be an excellent choice.
