9 kg of nettles :)
Almost 9 kg of green nettle, after removing the leaves.
1/3 for water retting, 1/3 for dew retting , and 1/3 for fiber removal right away. There is a lot of work with this method, but the fiber has the most beautiful color according to me (the fiber that will be created).
With this third method, you can dry and with the help of a dinner knife, “scrape” these green strips (good for warp, long fiber and strong), or boil in ash or soda to spread the glue. Then comb with combs, like sheep fleece (this way gives shorter and finer fiber). But all this will be described on this page 🙂
