I have one. It makes a great pouch, but it needs to be adjustable. Otherwise hemp jersey is too stretchy.

And you need to make sure that you sew it with the fabric in the correct direction so it doesn't stretch down, it only stretches out.

I don't know of anyone else who makes adjustable hemp pouches. But the links you were given should get you a non-adjustable hemp pouch, non-adjustable cotton pouch, or an adjustable cotton pouch.

Are you looking for yourself? If so, I would caution against a cotton pouch without leg padding or some sort of stretch, as they can dig into a toddler's legs. For example, my KKACP digs into my toddler's legs, my PIP does not.

If you do find a PIP, you would need a small. I have a small/med (I got it from another mom who custom ordered it), and it fits. You weigh less than I do, so would definitely go with the small. It has about 6 rows of snaps, all about an inch apart, so gives the maximum adjustability for newborn - toddler. But it sounds like you're considering the Hotsling -- I actually think it will be cooler in your hot weather than hemp.
