Description

Ecological nettle yarn for weaving!

For larger product lines, a large cone of Nordic silk, ie nettle. Half of the yarn is made of very ecological special materials, European nettle and fibrous hemp. The cotton used as a binder in the yarn is organically certified, which is half of the yarn.

Likewise, in addition to nettle fiber, fiber hemp always feels comfortable and brings a wonderful matte, silky sheen to the yarn and fabric.

Nettle, hemp and cotton together form a highly ecological yarn that challenges conventionally produced cotton. This water-saving yarn is thin and perfect for making great eco-friendly textile products. The finished product has a wonderful silky shine and close to the skin it ensures a comfortable feeling.

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 (urtica dioica) used in the fabric is ecologically and ethically cultivated in Germany. The fibers have been removed mechanically, without water, using an innovative method. The cotton used as a fabric binder is produced in Turkey ethically and ecologically. The yarns used in the fabric are spun in Germany and woven into fabric in Finland.

Nettle-hemp-cotton fabric is also an ecological choice 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.

Thank you for choosing an ethically produced organic product!
