NETTLE | SCARF
$50.00 – $70.00
This luxuriant hand-knitted scarf is made from nettle fiber, a perfect accessory to an elegant outfit. These eco-friendly shawls are hand knitted using wild stinging nettles harvested in remote Himalayan regions of Nepal. Women typically are involved in the harvest & spinning than knitting the fibers into these elegant scarves and shawls. Naturally, colored yarn requires no dying. Please expect variations within the coloring of the garment.
Nettle softens in use, it keeps you warm in the cold and does not make you hot or sweaty in warm weather. Nettle scarves do not irritate the skin or make it itch. Instead, the warmth of the skin softens the fibre, so the more you use it, the softer it gets.
The scarves are knitted from uncoloured yarn in natural tones. The colour of the yarn varies depending on in what kind of soil the plant has grown. All scarves have different beautiful lace patterns. The patterns are passed down from generation to generation by the women in the village. Handmade Allo (Himalayan Nettle Yarn) Scarf for gift or fashion
Natural colour, from high mountains in Nepal
