As a small business, I buy fabric and dye goods in small batches so making color matches can be challenging. My two fabric weights often emerge from the dye bath with subtly different shading. Though the two garments may have slightly different shade values, they still look great together.

When ordering, please let me know if an exact shade match is essential. If I don't have it in stock, I can often match garment shades using fabric from the same dye bath. If I need extra time to cut and sew, I’ll let you know when to expect delivery.

If you are comfortable with garments having similar (but not necessarily exact) shades, there's no need to check the box when placing an order for two or more items of the same color.

Your size/color not in stock? If I have the fabric, I can make it to order. Learn more or send me an email to check availability.

It layers beautifully beneath, yet offers enough coverage to wear alone. Handcrafted in the US from hemp/Tencel, the Tank Top reflects the best in eco friendly clothing.

  • Two side vents at hips
  • Back length, Medium, approximately 22."
  • Trim fit
  • Hand-crafted in the USA.


  • Light Weight woven 55% hemp and 45% Tencel™ (lyocell)

Light Weight is a breezy 4-oz. square weave to help keep your summer cool. Used only on Sympatico tops, it dries quickly and is slightly more prone to wrinkles than our Mid Weight fabric*. It's great in the tropics and on those steamy summer days! Both weights are soft and comfy and let your skin breathe.

Our sustainable hemp/Tencel fabric blend is easy to care for. To enhance its wonderfully supple hand and keep your clothes looking their best, follow these eco-friendly tips:

  1. Launder in cold water with like colors using an eco-friendly detergent. To preserve original color, launder garment inside out.
  2. We recommend you air-dry your Sympatico clothes to reduce energy consumption.
  3. Because the hemp content may produce wrinkles and develop a somewhat firm hand during laundering and air-drying, tumble your dry clothes in a warm dryer for a few minutes to relax wrinkles and soften the fabric's hand. (Because hemp softens with wear, this step becomes unnecessary as your garment ages.)
  4. Promptly remove clothes from the dryer and let them cool down on hangers.
  5. If needed, touch up collars and hems with a hot iron. To prevent possible shine from a setting that's too-high, iron inside out.
  6. When traveling, roll up your Sympatico clothes then hang them up on arrival. A quick spritz with water will help eliminate wrinkles. (I find spritzing my craft fair inventory on hangers works like a charm for releasing wrinkles that develop during travel.) Hanging wrinkled items in a steamy bathroom is a great alternative to ironing also.

Thanks to hemp's anti-microbial properties you'll probably find that you launder your Sympatico wear less often, reducing the energy your clothes consume.

    lightweight tank top

    Posted by Paula Kirifides on 13th Oct 2023

    This is my third lightweight tank top. The fabric is perfect for an underlayer. It's cool, smooth and drapes beautifully. The scoop neck is flattering but doesn't show cleavage, I'm long-waisted so Rose adjusted the pattern so it's a bit longer so the slits don't show skin. These tanks are perfect. I don't wear sleeveless, but the tank would be equally comfortable on its own.

    Lovely top

    Posted by Claire Lematta on 13th Jul 2023

    This is my 3rd or 4th purchase. I was lucky to meet the owner/designer in Ashland OR. She’s a lovely person. I got this particular top to complement a linen skirt and separate trousers. The structure is flattering and the color an unusual golden brown. I will be wearing it many times this summer!

    Fit & fabric

    Posted by Mary Straight on 22nd Jun 2023

    I have several of these tanks & I just love the way they fit. The fabric is soft & light - perfect for those hot days during travel. This tank washes out easily & always looks great!

    Tank top

    Love the new green tea color! I have several of these tops, in both weights, and they have been a life saver in dealing with extreme heat, both external and internal.

    Great top

    Posted by Kathleen on 2nd May 2021

    I wore this top yesterday and felt “pretty” for the first time in over a year. It made me happy. The red color is gorgeous, the light weight has a great drape and the neckline was perfect for me. It washed beautifully...... and it wasn’t a tee/shirt! The fit was perfect.

    Tank top

    Posted by Christina Endress on 20th Aug 2020

    Love Sympatico tank tops. Have several in both light and mid weight and can't decide which I like the best although in 100+ temperatures in summer Tucson it's hard to beat the light weight. This purchase is sage which is a beautiful color. I also bought crop pants in same color, but didn't worry about marking the two pieces as a set as all colors are so pretty together and even the same color doesn't have to be an exact match to look good toether.

    I like everything about this shirt

    Posted by Paula on 12th Aug 2019

    The fabric- light but not see-through. Its almost “swingy”. The color- I got slate and it is more muted than shown on my computer screen, which is a good thing. The fit- I wear a 14 and this fit me very well. The customer service- Rose was very patient with my unending questions I asked before ordering.

    Love my new Hemp/tencel tank top

    Posted by Cynthia Kimball on 19th Jun 2019

    I love the new color slate blue, the fit (always fits right) and the style. I put it on immediately after I got it. And I actually have it on right now as I type this review. I love that it's made locally here in Oregon too. And the customer service is fabulous, I got my tank top within a few days of ordering.
