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

    Knits up nicely

    The yarn is very soft and colors simply amazing.. It is not the easiest to knit as it splinters and becomes fuzzy once unraveled, but I loved how knitted fabric looks and feels. Special thanks to the store for super fast shipping and delivery and a gift I received along with the yarn!

    Surprising treat!

    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.

    Really nice yarn!

    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!

    Coming through in the midst of storms

    When my local LYS ran out of the yarn I needed to finish a project, 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

    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!
