Onion Nettle Sock Yarn
NEW from Onion in Denmark Nettle Sock Yarn
Sock yarn in a completely new blend, the yarn gets its wear resistance from the nettle fibre, which is an incredibly strong fibre.
This means that it is now possible to knit socks in pure NATURAL FIBRES, without synthetic additives such as nylon.
At the same time, the yarn has a very beautiful sheen and is slightly mottled, as the nettle fibre does not take the dye.
