Ramie is a fiber grass from the nettle family. It has been grown in China for the production of textiles for over 3000 years and is therefore one of the oldest textile plants.
Ramie is particularly hard-wearing and seduces with a slight sheen. Similar to linen, it is particularly suitable for light summer textiles.
But also in sock wool it gives the wool a special strength so that synthetic fibers can be dispensed with.
