Erika Knight – Wild Wool
or 4 fortnightly payments of $8.63 with More info
Wild Wool is a sustainable blend of soft wool and natural nettle. Available in 9 colours.
Erika Knight yarns are renowned for their quality and eco-friendly, yet luxurious composition.
Spun from the fibre found inside the stem of the plant, nettle has been used for 2000 years for its strength and durability as a textile. Nettle is grown abundantly and perennially in rainy areas worldwide without the need for harmful pollutants or pesticides, making it eco-friendly and sustainable.
Blended with luxurious wool the nettle enhances the character of this yarn, adding insulation and texture, which contrary to its prickly persona, creates a sumptuously soft ‘aran’ weight yarn in a palette of irresistible colours inspired by the wild. Patterns also available.
