I’ve got such a soft spot for embroidery, I couldn’t resist to feature the work of fibre artist Tessa Perlow

Allan Brown presents Nettles for Textiles and gives a very interesting and detailed tutorial for how to forage stinging nettles and how to process them at home and spin them into a use able yarn for weaving or knitting. Watch the process here, we suggest making a cuppa and immersing yourself into the beautifully shot video!
