The Stinging nettle (urtica dioica) and hemp are ecologically and ethically cultivated in Germany. The fibers have been decorticated mechanically, without water, using an innovative method. The cotton used as a fabric binder is produced in Turkey ethically and ecologically.
Nettle- hemp-cotton yarn is an ecological choice also because no plant protection products or pesticides are used in the cultivation of the materials. Nettle and hemp grow without irrigation and improve the condition of the soil with their long and strong roots. Plants also attract beneficial insects to nest and overwinter on plant stalks and provide food for birds. Nettle-hemp- cotton yarn is a great choice for making ecological textiles.
