Nettle fibre for spinning - by Himalayan Allo Udhyog

Nettle fibre is a remarkable natural fibre known for its sustainability, strength, and softness. Spinning with nettle fibre can be a rewarding experience. The fibres are long and flexible, making them easy to spin into yarn. Incorporating nettle fibre into your spinning project not only adds a unique touch but also contributes to a more sustainable future. Whether you're creating a new garment, weaving a decorative piece, or experimenting with mixed-media textiles, nettle fiber offers a refreshing and environmentally conscious option to explore.


Himalayan nettle fibres (Allo) are extracted from the stalks of nettle plants (Girardinia diversifolia) found in the Himalayan region. These fibers have been used by local communities for centuries to create various products, including textiles, ropes, fishing nets, baskets, and more. Himalayan nettle fibres are known for their strength, durability, and eco-friendly properties. Nettle is a finer fibre than hemp, and similar to flax with more washes, the fibre will soften.
