Erika Knight Wild Wool is a sustainable blend of soft wool and natural nettle.
Nettle has been used for 2000 years for its strength and durability as a textile. It is grown abundantly and perennially in wet areas worldwide without the need for harmful pollutants or pesticides, making it eco-friendly and sustainable. Blended with Corriedale wool, the nettle enhances the character of this beautiful yarn, adding insulation and texture, which is contrary to its prickly persona.
