The composition of our Nepal yarn is really out of the ordinary: 60% organic cotton and 28% linen are blended with 12% nettle fibres. The mixture allows the yarn to be both sturdy and soft. The fact that it is twisted gives Nepal a particularly beautiful and natural structure.
While the cotton for this vegan yarn comes from India, the linen and nettle come from Nepal. It is spun and dyed in Italy.
Nepal has excellent wearing properties: cotton makes it breathable, the linen content gives the yarn a pleasant feel and the nettle fibre ensures a nice soft feel and a delicate sheen. This makes Nepal the perfect basis for airy tops, but it is warm enough to be a nice all-year-round yarn.
