4-Ply / Fingering / Sock Weight Yarns

Nettle Sock

Made by Danish company Onion Knit, this combination of superwash wool and nettle fibre creates a durable yarn with a lovely drape. We recommend this yarn for wooly accessories like hats and mittens, and for lightweight sweaters. The colours of this yarn are slightly muted, thanks to the nettle fibres that resist dye and maintain their natural grey colours. The yarn is made in Italy.

Despite its name, we do not recommend using this yarn for socks - Ravelry reviews suggest that socks made from this yarn quickly develop holes!
