Long staple cotton / ramie nettle 800g

£65.00

I think of this as a sort of plant-based bourette silk, and it has very similar qualities – an earthy, slightly textured yarn while keeping the softness of the long staple cotton. It feels dry to the touch and has beautiful ‘tooth’. It will break under pressure like bourette silk however one of our testers successfully warped it to produce a beautiful cloth, and with selvedges reinforced by cotton it would perform even better. So, we would suggest this as a great choice as a weft, but it definitely can be warped.

Long staple cotton brings the softness and durability, while bast ramie nettle breaks in to produce lovely drape and a soft, textured feel.

These are 800g cones. As part of our sustainability efforts we ask our suppliers to make use of re-used cone cores wherever possible, and this yarn has cones with the base a bit bent. We think this is a great thing and it doesn’t affect the yarn in any way. 🙂
