STINGING NETTLE: an eco fiber that is similar to linen but does not wrinkle as easily & is stronger than cotton. With modern fabric production, stinging nettle can be softer & more comfortable than linen. Unlike cotton, the whole stinging nettle plant (leaf & stem) can be used for fiber production. It can be grown in cold & harsh climates, with no pesticides & little watering. It was harvested widely for textile use before cotton production overtook it in the industrial revolution.
