Different types of fiber

  Comparison 1. fiber removed from green nettle, dried, boiled in the ash about 2 hours 2. fiber removed from nettles, retted about a month on the grass

When nettle retting is finnished?

Nettle retting These are nettles  that I think are best retted (up to now). The fiber ( which I give to the next processing stage) is easily removed from them. They are dark, it is part of process, they also give more gray than the green fiber.
