100% Aloo: Himalayan Giant Nettle girardinia diversifolia
plied slubby (hand spun)
Hand wash in cold water, dry flat.
Handspun by families in Nepal through a cottage industry. Aloo is a natural fiber made from the Himalayan Nettle plant. It is a relative to our stinging nettle, but it grows as tall as 16 feet at elevations of 5500-8500 feet. The finished, handspun yarn is similar to raw linen.
