From Sting to Spin. A History of Nettle Fibre

‘From Sting to Spin. A History of Nettle Fibre by Gillian Edom
Sting to Spin

This is the first book that has been written about the history of nettle fibre, apart from the Dunsmore books of course. These, however, relate purely to the Nepalese nettle, Girardinia diversifolia. Most of the history of my book is about the European Urtica dioica, but I have also written a little about the use of various nettle plants for fibre by the indigenous groups of North America and Canada.
The book has 68 pages and includes b & w and some colour pictures. It also contains a full reference list and index. The cost is £7, which converts to approximately $10. This would not include postage and packaging. If anyone would like to buy a copy of this book please write to:
Urtica Books,
16 South Way,
Bognor Regis,
West Sussex, England,
PO21 5HA

or email: gillianae at hotmail.co.uk. There are a limited number of copies available.
