Nepal is a soft, all-season yarn; its combination of linen and stinging-nettle fibers makes it light and grippy at the same time, and is wonderfully suited for cardigans as well as towels. This versatile material impresses through its extremely natural, expressive, and lively colors, in addition to a pleasant feel to the skin.
The highlight of our Nepal lies in its twisting. It provides the yarn its special and unique look, recognizable by its long stinging-nettle fibers, which grant this product that touch of "something special".
Nepal's cotton component provides excellent wearing properties. Cotton is breathable; furthermore, the linen gives the yarn a pleasant feel, and the stinging-nettle fibers offer a nice soft grip. Our Nepal is thus the perfect yarn for light, airy tops!
