Nettle Research

The very first nettle cloth, found in Denmark about 3000 years ago, dated back to the Bronze Age (940 -750 BC), was processed to be a luxury item.
"The Lusehøj textile (National Museum of Denmark B26436) (Fig A), was wrapped around cremated human remains and placed inside a bronze urn. The yarn is fine and evenly spun, measuring 0.3–0.5 mm in diameter and with an S-twist in both thread directions”, and woven as “dense and balanced tabby weave”. (Bergfjord, 2012))
