Description – Ramie fibre is lustrous, silk-like in apperance and sometimes mistaken for linen. It’s extremely absorbent, much more so than cotton, and also breathes well (much like linen), making it especially comfortable for warm and humid summers. And it’s made from nettles! Or a least a non-stinging Chinese variety of the nettle family. Because of its strength and breathability, it has been used as both a utility and a luxury fabric in the home, for clothing and a variety of household items, such as handkerchiefs, tablecloths and bedding.

Washing Instructions – Manufacturer says: Machine wash in warm water on a gentle cycle with a cold-water rinse. Pre-wash before first wash. Cool gentle tumble-dry. We strongly recommend testing a small piece first to be sure.
