Sagt om klesplagg av nesle:
Allo (= nesle) is cool in the summer and warm in winter, and
it´s waterproof, durable and can be worn throughout the year. And then there´s
the gauzy lightweight feel of allo shawls and scarves that makes you feel like
you´re in a fairy tale world, evoking at every glance the beautiful mountains
of eastern Nepal where ingenuity, folk science, and very hard work come
Kjempenesle Girardiana diversifolia
The natural fiber of allo comes from the bark of giant
nettle Girardinia diversifolia and has been extracted for generations in
the high mountain region. The allo plant occurs in most of the high mountain regions
of Nepal at the altitude of 1200 and 3000m. It is a short herb about 2-3 m
high, belonging to the family Urticaceae. The leaves are stalked, palmately and
deeply divided, dendate and covered with long stinging hairs with hooked
protrusions that cause irritation to human skin.. The flowering season is July –
September and the flowers are yellowish, clustered in a panicle. They propagate
through seeds or root off-shoots. The bark fiber
peeled off from the stem yields a silky white fiber which is utilized for
making thread, ropes or spun into a yarn.
