What is nettle? Nettle fibres have a long tradition in the textile industry that reaches back into ancient times.
Nettle has been used for millennia to make cords and ropes or weave them into cloth but was gradually forgotten when cotton and later acrylic fibres took over.
And now we are pleased to be able to offer you nettle as a knitting yarn! Pascuali Nepal, is a gorgeous blend of 60% cotton, 28% linen and 12% nettle.
