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. It’s soft yarn, with natural feel and appearance, as nettle fibre undyed.

Made in Italy exclusively for Bessie May.
