Fabric knitted from nettle fibres. Researcher Alex Dear from De Montfort University, UK, holds up fabric knitted entirely from stinging nettle (Urtica dioica) fibres. Stinging nettles have traditionally been used as a herbal medicine and tonic, but are now cultivated to produce fibres for textile manufacturing. The high fibre yields and easy growing conditions make nettles an attractive alternative crop.
