Woodland Yarn by Classic Elite

Woodland from Classic Elite, part of Verde Collection of eco conscious yarns, is a combination of wool and environmentally-friendly nettles. Each of these fibers takes the dye differently, giving both the neutral and vibrant colors of Woodland a heathered look. Nettles are a perennial that requires low levels of water and little or no pesticides. Nettle fibers are similar to linen and hemp but produce a softer, silkier fiber. Nettles show color well and, when mixed with wool, add lightness, minimize shrinkage and are breathable.
