wild nettle handspun yarn skeinsSold Out
A fine, single ply yarn in an earthy, organic brown. Lovely fibrous, yet smooth texture. This batch looks much compare a little to laceweight or sportsweight linen - not a fine thread, but not quite a 4ply.
Ideal to use in weaving, textured tapestry, rugs etc (not so much for garments), to crochet into washers etc if you're looking for a bit of a scrub effect. Softer, lighter feel than the similar style hemp and thinner than our 100g ball nettle
