WILD WOOL

16,50

“An ancient fibre recycled for a modern maker”
Erika Knight

Wild Wool is a sustainable blend of soft wool and natural nettle. Spun from the fibre found inside the stem of the plant, nettle has been used for 2000 years for its strength and durability as a textile. Nettle is grown abundantly and perennially in rainy areas worldwide without the need for harmful pollutants or pesticides, making it eco-friendly and sustainable.
Blended with luxurious wool, the nettle enhances the character of this yarn, adding insulation and texture and creating a sumptuously soft ‘aran’ weight yarn in a palette of irresistible colours inspired by the wild.
