Item details

Plant origin China.
Weight: 18 gr/mt (+/- 10%)
Imported from Italy. DHG




Pure ramie, which it is, can be spun into a fine yarn either dry or wet. You will find it very similar to spinning tussah silk, and when there is static electricity, the fibre clings to your clothes. Before you spin, shake the top a little. Do very little pre-drafting, otherwise the top will fall apart. Pure ramie makes beautiful weaving yarns and Ramie yarns will be stiff at first, but, like flax, will soften with age.

If you want to spin knitting yarns you can add some elasticity by blending ramie with 30% wool. Blended 50/50 with cotton, ramie increases lustre and durability of the cotton fibre. Ramie also blends well with silk.
