Unbelievably, this beautiful delicate hand crocheted shawl is made from wild nettle! Grows wild therefore naturally organic. Crafted by hand right from the harvesting of the nettle through to the finished shawl. This wrap is the perfect accessory to wear to a party or special evening out. The wild nettles are harvested and processed by hand before being hand drawn (by a method called tooth and spindle) into fine yarn - it takes 10 days' work to make one kilogramme of nettle yarn. Tooth and spindle method was used in Europe during the middle ages. The hand-drawn yarn for this product is bought direct from the people in the hills of Nepal. The sale of nettle yarn and nettle fibre products provides a cash income to families living in remote hilly areas of Nepal.This lovely addition to your wardrobe will help the people of the hills maintain their delicate environment. 100% Himalayan Wild Nettle. Colour: Natural Wash care: Hand wash only in cool water using non-biological washing liquid or flakes. Wring lightly, line dry, cool iron while damp. Do not tumble dry.
