100% Natural, premium quality Nettle Sock Yarn - with no plastic additives such as nylon for your tired feet. The content of Nettle fiber makes this yarn strong and slightly glossy - a great substitute for silk. No reinforcement is required since the nettle fiber has the strength of instant silk.
As the result, it is very usable for making socks. The Nettle Sock Yarn is manufactured especially with the socks in mind. Therefore, being pesticide-free, it has a SuperWash treatment for your convenience, so the socks can be machine washed. With a velvety and silken texture, this eco sock yarn is manufactured in vibrant solid and natural colours.
Nettle Sock Yarn is suitable not only for socks, but also for hand/machine knitted and crocheted pullovers and accessories, including men and kid's outfits. Untreated Organic Nettle Sock yarn is also in our inventory (DK, hand wash). Nettle Sock Yarn is dyed according to European standards, poison free guaranteed. Nettle fiber used in this yarn is wild and pesticide-free.
