Onion- No.3 Organic Wool & Nettles

Onion- No.3 Organic Wool & Nettles

This fibre blend is a great natural alternative to traditional sock blends that use nylon (70% Organic Wool + 30% Nettle).

These yarns come in a variety of beautiful colours, the mottled look is due to the nettles, as the nettle doesn't naturally accept dye. Nettle fibres are breathable and a great insulator, providing both warmth and strength needed for socks or garments. This environmentally friendly fibre is also biodegradable.
