Wood nettle handspun yarn

Artist: Jazmin Hicks-Dahl

This Laportea Canadensis (“Wood Nettle”) was wild harvested and processed in Minnesota, then spun on a drop spindle quite fine (about 20/1) from fibers that are long and strong (a lot like linen, but stickier and a bit hairier). After boiling, the color lightened up. Once there is enough spun, the plan is to make pants out of the thread.
