Nettle Soft DK
Nettle Soft DK is a unique and eco-friendly blend of Fine Merino and nettle fibre, which results in a yarn that will give your garments beautiful drape, lustre, and stitch definition. Fine Merino creates a soft, lofty yarn with plenty of bounce and character and feels wonderful next to the skin. Nettle is lustrous, soft, wrinkle resistant (wrinkles will hang out), and is fabulous for warm weather knits because it is breathable. Thanks to it’s hollow fibres it is also temperature regulating so you can wear it year round!
In this yarn the nettle does not take up dye and this results in a lovely soft heathering effect, providing a silk-like sheen to the yarn. This wonderful yarn is as close as you can get to an all-purpose yarn and will give you many years of enjoyment!
