Nettle – Nettle & Organic Wool

Bessie May’s Nettle – inspiring aran weight natural yarn from the Lishie lou range. Back to nature with 70% organic wool, in 7 soft natural dusty shades, with a 30% twist of undyed nettle fibre, defining the natural style, and creating a gentle coloured yarn, with a lovely fleck from the natural nettle fibre.

Yes Bessie May Nettle is really made with Stinging Nettle Fibre – a fibre used for all sorts of things by our ancestors, including yarns, weaving, as well as for food and healing, being a strong and versatile plant fibre. Bessie May Nettle knits into a lovely weight fabric, and is perfect for cabling or showing off deep stitch definition.
