Nettle Spinning


As a Newbie to spinning I currently still mix wool into my nettle spinning since the wool scales provides a bit of grip. bast fibres don't have scales so the yarn slips apart much easier. Lovely yarn though,m so I will practise practise practise... 
This yarn wraps to 30 WPI, however the wonderfully experienced Amanda Hannaford (MandaCrafts), who gave me a tutorial, manages an amazingly fine 50 WPI prom pure nettle fibre - gorgeous and fit for weaving shirts for bewitched princes!
