Nettle Sock Yarn | 4ply
This gorgeous yarn is an exciting blend of soft wool and nettle fibres, making it an all-natural sock yarn. The nettles give strength to the yarn, taking the place of nylon, and giving you a 100% natural fibre sock-yarn alternative. This yarn is beautiful to touch and knit with, and is perfect for everything you would use regular sock yarn for - shawls, accessories and of course, socks!
Available in a range of lovely colours that compliment each other beautifully, some with a natural heathered or flecked effect as the nettles and wool take the dye differently.
