Shower mitten crochet kit
Himalayan nettle is cultivated from the stem of the nettle plant. It requires little water or protection from pests and diseases to grow making it environmentally friendly in comparison to other plant fibres.
Created with what may be considered a ‘weed’, nettles are transformed into a gentle, soft, versatile fibre. It is breathable, strong and durable and with use feel soft against your skin, making it an ideal fibre for this project. These shower mittens allow the soap to lather and can be worn for either the left or the right hand.
