Wild Wool by Erika Knight
Wild Wool is a sustainable blend of soft wool and natural nettle.

Spun from the fiber found inside the stem of the plant, nettle has been used for 2000 years for its strength and durability as a textile. Nettle is grown abundantly and perennially in rainy areas worldwide without the need for harmful pollutants or pesticides, making it eco-friendly and sustainable.
When blended with luxurious wool, nettle fiber enhances the character of this yarn by adding insulation, texture, and shine. Wild Wool yarns comes in a palette of irresistible colours inspired by nature.

  • 85% wool, 15% nettle (viscose)
  • US 7-9 needles
  • 18 st and 24 rows = 4"
  • Hand wash or dry clean

5 of 5 Surprising treat! September 18, 2021
Reviewer: Anonymous Person from Spartanburg, SC United States  
Love this color! Feels soft and squishy, yet stable. Unbelievable to think this is a yarn  combining nettle and wool. The only nettle I'm familiar with was the stinging variety I occasionally bumped into as a child.  (Ouch!) So it's good to know there's a softer side to nettles (fiberous inside) that can be spun into yarn.  Can't wait to combine it with a skein of  contrasting Traipse for a lovely, warm cowl.

5 of 5 Really nice yarn! March 3, 2021
Reviewer: Sandi from Illinois  
This wool and nettle yarn is a pleasure to work with.  I received a hank in a bimonthly subscription and quickly crocheted a standup neck cowl.  The fiber allows for stitches to stand out and maintain their shape even after a good soak and block.  I was so impressed with this yarn that I ordered a hank in every color and will start making Christmas gifts for 2021.  Thank you!

5 of 5 Coming through in the midst of storms February 22, 2021
Reviewer: Kim Birum from Duvall, WA United States  
When my local LYS ran out of the yarn I needed to finish a project, Handknitting.com had it shipped to me in less than 2 weeks in the midst of snowstorms across the nation.  Thanks for your quick and professional service v

Reviewer: yvonne stolworthy from Modesto, CA United States  
It looks and feels gorgeous.  Not sure what I am going to turn it into yet.  I was intrigued by the nettle content and just had to have some!
