Woodland
Woodland, part of the Verde Collection of environmentally conscious yarns, is a combination of wool and environmentally-friendly nettles. Each of these fibers takes the dye differently, giving both the neutral and vibrant colors of Woodland a heathered look.

Nettles are a perennial and require low levels of water and little or no pesticides. Nettle fibers are similar to linen and hemp but produce a softer, silkier fabric. Nettles show color well and when mixed with wool add lightness, minimize shrinkage, and are breathable.

Woodland includes five designs in the yarn that shares the booklet's name. A new addition to the Verde Collection in fall 2010, these designs have interesting stitch details that compliment the very unique yarn used to make them. The mittens, tam and cropped kimono-style cardigan are quick, satisfying knits and the cabled vest and lace edge cardigan are beautiful showpieces. Woodland bonus photos.
