Hemp (Cannabis sativa L) fibres in their individualised form are a viable alternative to cotton fibres for textile manufacture. These fibres have similar diameter, length and properties to cotton however obtaining individual fibres from the fibre rich hemp bark is not a simple process. This work analyses a cottonised hemp fibre produced by a new rapid catalytic degumming technique developed by Deakin University and Logistik Unicorp.
