This fabric is available minimum of half a metre lengths. All multiple orders will not be cut into seperate lengths, but left as a continuous length.

Please be aware that this fabric is loomstate, that means it has come straight off the loom. It is strongly recommended that this fabric is pre-washed prior to tailoring as a small percentage of shrinkage is to be expected.

From harvesting, retting and handspinning the fibres through to the completion of the fabric on a handloom is a very time consuming process. Nettle fabric is made in various high altitude areas across Nepal, one particular area with a reputation for fine yarn is Sankhuwasava which lies east of Kathmandu. This nettle fabric is from Sankhuwasava.

Himalayan Giant Nettle is famously known as ‘ALLO’ in Nepalese.
