Nettle yarn processing exhibition in Pärnu

In Pärnu I visited Nettle yarn processing exhibition organised by Modern Art Museum (Uue Kunsti Muuseum) . There was also a book “Taimest Tulnud” about different plants to get yarn from. Exhibition was very small, so I could take pictures of it. I had plans towards my nettle field already some time ago. I thought of getting yarn from nettle after winter, as some russian article proposed, because then plants don’t need to be soaked in water and otherwise weakened, but in my case there was no more yarn left after winter, so autumn maybe would be a better time.
