Onion No. 4 — Organic Wool + Nettles
A delicious and eco-friendly blend of organic wool and nettle fibers. This DK yarn is lightweight, soft, and has great stitch definition. While the organic wool fibre provides the softness, the nettle fibre gives a beautiful sheen and drape. The nettle also makes the yarn very durable and thus makes it PERFECT FOR SOCK KNITTING in the organic genre - no plastic!
Lastly, the nettle fibre does not absorb the dye evenly like the organic wool, creating heather look and a pearly sheen, with occasional natural slubs of undyed fiber.
Let yourself be seduced by the softness and surprising quality of this sustainable yarn!
