Sunstrand’s proprietary seed is selected to be the gold standard for industrial hemp fiber and core production. Our crops are grown and harvested by local farmers in the United States and Canada with the goal of redeveloping the nation’s status as the leader in hemp material production.


Sunstrand's Hemp Fiber

Hemp fiber is processed from the outer layer of the hemp stalks. Its natural tensile strength and low-weight make it a sustainable, environmentally-friendly substitute for synthetic fibers. Hemp fiber is often used to provide performance improvements in composite, nonwoven, and compounding applications.

Available Lengths: 6 mm – 89 mm
