Wild Wool, a recent yarn by Erika Knight, is a sustainable blend of soft wool and natural nettle. Spun from the fibre found inside the stem of the plant, nettle has been used for 2000 years for its strength and durability as a textile. It is grown abundantly and perennially in rainy areas worldwide without the need for harmful pollutants or pesticides, making it eco-friendly and sustainable.
Blended with luxurious wool, the nettle enhances the character of this wonderful yarn, adding insulation and texture, which is contrary to its prickly persona. Wild Wool is a sumptuously soft aran weight yarn, in a palette of irresistible colours inspired by the wild.
