Retted Kentucky hemp stalks ready to make sustainable products using the fibers and hurd! "Retting" is the process of letting the stalks rot enough to leave a nice, fine, durable fiber than easily breaks of the strong, quality hurd (inside of the stalk). The fiber can be used for textiles and biocomposities, while the hurd can be used for hempcrete (concrete mixture made from hemp, lime and water) or even animal bedding! #green #sustainable #renewable #fiber #textiles #hurd #stalk…
