The composition of Pascauli's Nepal yarn is really out of the ordinary: 60% organic cotton and 28% linen are blended with 12% nettle fibers. The mixture allows the yarn to be both sturdy and soft. The fact that it is twisted gives Nepal a particularly beautiful and natural structure.
While the cotton for this vegan yarn comes from India, the linen and nettle come from Nepal. It is spun and dyed in Italy.
Nepal has excellent wearing properties: cotton makes it breathable, the linen content gives the yarn a pleasant feel and the nettle fiber ensures a nice soft feel and a delicate sheen. This makes Nepal the perfect basis for airy tops, but it is warm enough to be a nice all-year-round yarn.
Nepal is wonderful for light sweaters or cardigans, as well as accessories such as knitted or crocheted scarves. This light yarn is easy to handle and feels very pleasant on the skin. What makes it stand out is its natural, vibrant colors. Furthermore, the yarn is particularly durable; garments made from it tend not to stretch and do not wear out easily.
