NETTLE

NID, Ahmedabad

 

Alternate natural fibre source

Stinging nettle is commonly found all over India, especially in the Himalayan region and it is an important part of the local culture. It is known to have high tensile strength and good absorbency. This project aims at exploring the unique properties of hand spun nettle yarn while combining it with cotton, both in the warp and weft.
