Bessie May Nettle - inspiring aran weight natural yarn from the Lishie-lou range. Back to nature with 70% organic wool in 7 natural soft dusty shades, with a 30% twist of un-dyed nettle fibre, defining the natural style, and creating a gentle coloured yarn, with a lovely fleck from the natural nettle fibre.

Bessie May Nettle is a new and exciting fibre mix, to bring something special to any design.

Yes Bessie May Nettle is really made with Stinging Nettle Fibre - a fibre used for all sorts of things by our ancestors, including yarns, weaving, as well as for food and healing, being a strong and versatile fibre.

Bessie May Nettle knits into a lovely weight fabric, and is perfect for cabling or showing off deep stitch definition.

Made in Italy exclusively for Bessie May.
