Nettle Tweed

Nettle tweeds are a 50/50% blend of nettle and British lambswool yarn. 
A surprisingly soft fabric, fit for shawls and cosy blankets. 
Both fibres have hypoallergenic properties, which makes them easy on the skin. 
At the same time the addition of nettle brings down the environment impact of
 this fabric to 50% of Wool, 30% of Viscose, 20% of Polyester and 10% of Nylon. 

Some of my samples aim for a more classic look 
and some for a couture style tweed.
