Nettle yarns have been used for centuries in Nepal. The yarns are woven, crocheted, and knitted into many different types of items—everything from clothing and ceremonial accessories to fishing nets and bags.

Our yarns are completely natural, made without the use of chemicals or machines. Nettle, also called Alloo, is gathered from wild plants. The fibers are processed and spun by hand in villages in Nepal. The resulting yarn has a natural and rustic appeal.

Like linen it will soften with wear. Nettle is a natural moth repellent and is often used in Nepal for backing wool carpets.

NOTE: Most balls will contain some hand-tied breaks.

Material: 100% Nettle

Size: approx. 250 yds per 100g ball

Every yard is an adventure!
