European innovatively produced ecological nettle is a very high quality fibre with dim shine. During the golden age of nettle in the 18th century, the royals used the finest nettle fibers in their clothing. Knokkon yarn has 30% of nettle. Thanks to the new innovation, it is possible to make products containing nettle for you to enjoy the excellent properties of the nettle. The yarn is comfortable to weave, the hand feel is warm and the finished product is breathable thanks to the structure of the nettle core fiber. The fibre is breathable and keeps you feeling comfortable.

Knokkon’s goal is to keep the carbon footprint of its products as small as possible. The materials are ecological and are sourced as close as possible. The nettle fiber (urtica dioica) used in the scarf is ecologically and ethically cultivated in Germany. The fibers have been removed mechanically, without water, by an innovative method. The cotton used as a binder for nettle fibre is produced ethically and ecologically. The yarns are spun in Germany and the scarves are knitted in Finland. The nettle-cotton scarf is an ecological choice also because no herbicides or pesticides are used in the cultivation of the materials. Nettle only needs natural rain to grow, which also saves groundwater.

Thank you for choosing an ethically produced organic product!
