These exquisite pants are made from fine hemp and organic cotton with 3% spandex. They have just the right amount of stretch and hold their shape for many days of wearing. They have a high fold over waistband. They are great for travel on an airplane as they are anti-fungal and anti-bacterial. They are elegant enough to wear out to dinner and stretchy enough for yoga. They are just the right length so as not to drag on the ground. They are wonderful for all seasons as they are UV protected and water absorbent. Combined with leggings underneath you are securely warm.
