Hemp Yoga Shorts for Men



Typically, shorts for hot yoga are not made out of a cellulose fibre (cotton, linen, hemp, bamboo) without something synthetic added, because they will just not be tight enough. So many men asked us for shorts for hot yoga - and in explaining the reason why we couldn't make them, we came to a compromise. If you're ok with providing your own liner (ie, wear underwear), these are super because the hemp fabric has natural moisture wicking properties.

  • THE FABRIC The shorts are made of 55% Hemp | 45% Cotton - the natural fibers and non-constricting style allow your body to breathe and release its toxins.
  • WHY HEMP? Hemp, the first and strongest natural fibre to be cultivated, is considered nature's most valuable, versatile and reusable resource. Hemp can be grown in almost any conditions without chemicals and pesticides, and is used in clothing, paper, food, medicine and cosmetics. It's resistance to mildew and bacteria, as well as its high protection performance against UV rays, means that wearing hemp benefits both skin and health.
  • THE PREMIUM "VIJANTHY SEAMS"  THE PREMIUM "Vijanthy" SEAMS Take three times longer to sew than regular industrial seams and are very strong. Finished on the outside of the pants to be chafe-free and smooth against your skin. (These seams are to Dear Lil' Devas a source of proprietary pride - our Production Manager, Vijanthy has spent many hours this last decade sewing these special seams, and teaching the rest of us to sew them too!)
  • THE TRADEMARK PANEL BOTTOM allows the shorts to stretch without riding up or down; no plumber's butt here!
  • KNOT JUST ANY OLD DRAWSTRING  Why? - because it does up securely, AND comes undone easily - even when wet after the most intense workout.
  • THE HIGH-QUALITY CONSTRUCTION Made in a relaxed, benevolent, non-factory environment in Canada by Dear Lil' Devas ~ Yoga Clothing and Accessories Infused with Good Vibes!

Hemp Yoga Shorts Story

It's Rosie here, designer for Dear Lil' Devas :-)

I have received quite a few e-mails from men who want shorts for yoga (and especially for hot yoga) out of natural fibres. After giving it a lot of thought, I decided to shelve the idea, because there were so many complications.

People are accustomed to synthetic fabrics for a lot of yoga clothes, and the transition between natural fibres and synthetic especially for something like shorts for hot yoga, I thought would be too big a learning curve.

Then, along came John Flaxman, (in the pictures to your left). At the Toronto Yoga Show he asked me why I didn't just make the hemp pants shorter so that he could use them for hot yoga? Well..., I said, - there isn't a liner in them - he said that doesn't matter, and after much discussion, we finally decided to try them.

Here is his report: "SUCCESS, I love the shorts, I used them in a hot yoga class. The shorts that I usually use get very wet from sweating and eventually my legs have rivers running down them. Your hemp shorts soaked up the sweat and my legs were not as bad. The draw string worked perfectly. As for seeing my underwear, I asked the instructor if she could see anything when I was doing a headstand and her response was, “only when I walked right up beside you.” Other than that, she could not see anything." "A quick not on the absorption rate, the shorts seemed to absorb more of the sweat then my regular shorts and my regular shorts are made of a nylon/polyester combination. The hot yoga room I was in was at around 115F I believe that that is around 43C."
