The organic nettle yarns we use come direct from the farming communities that process the nettle plants in remote valleys of Nepal. It is ideal for making rugs that can be woven in with other yarns to produce a variety of textural variations. Nettle fibre is made from the Himalayan giant singing nettle. The nettle yarns are processed and woven into rugs. Nettle yarn is very strong and durable - stronger than hemp - and longer lasting. As it is washed it becomes paler in colour and softer to touch.
To customise your own nettle/allo rug in 100 knots is US$592/sq.m OR US$55/sq.ft, please HERE for an order form.
