Get ready to meet your new favorite warm weather yarn! Bel Viso is a fantastic blend of cotton, linen, and soft nettle fibers. Nettle can be harvested and processed with similar techniques as linen, so please forget any thoughts of "stinging nettles" or fairy tale sisters torturing themselves by making nettle jackets for their brothers. The yarn has a subtle texture that, in combination with the spray-dye, gives simple stitches plenty of interest while maintaining a smooth, even surface. Bel Viso has incredible drape, making it a perfect choice for softly swinging summer tops or skirts.
60% Cotton, 28% Linen, 12% Nettle with approximately 394 yards per 100g that knits to 7.5 stitches per inch on a US 2 (2.75mm) needle.
