Do you remember this Hans Christian Andersen's tale?: "Far away in the land to which the swallows fly when it is winter, dwelt a king who had eleven sons, and one daughter, named Eliza." The king married a very wicked queen who turned eleven brothers into wild swans, and Eliza saved them by making for them 11 Nettle shirts: "The little mice ran about the floor, they dragged the nettles to her feet, to help as well as they could. " - The Wind Swans ». Yes, Nettle makes wonders.

This partially organic, natural and untreated yarn is soft and velvety to the touch, with slightly sheen, silky texture. A good substitute for Silky Wool. It is suitable for any kinds of garments and accessories for the entire family - men, women, kids of any age and pets.
