Nettles For Textiles


NETTLES FOR TEXTILES from Allan Brown on Vimeo.


Allan Brown demonstrates the processes he takes nettle plants through, in order to extract a usable fibre for textiles.

A facebook group 'Nettles For Textiles' is available, for those seeking to share knowledge and skills or simply ask questions and get clarification on anything related to processing nettles and creating textiles from their fibres.

'Nettles For Textiles' was shot and edited by Dylan Howitt.

“Blue is a powerful film about our oceans. It charts the challenges we face and the opportunities for positive change. Filmed in Australia, Indonesia, the Philippines, the South Pacific and the United States, this stunning cinematic documentary comes at a time when we are making critical decisions that will decide the legacy we leave for generations to come.”

Power To Change


Atomic waste is the most harmful waste imaginable. You can’t just dispose of it…


The time frame in question when dealing with radioactive waste ranges from 10,000 to 1,000,000 years,[60] according to studies based on the effect of estimated radiation doses.[61] Researchers suggest that forecasts of health detriment for such periods should be examined critically.[62] [63] Practical studies only consider up to 100 years as far as effective planning[64] and cost evaluations[65] are concerned. Long term behavior of radioactive wastes remains a subject for ongoing research projects in geoforecasting.[66]

For most foods I successfully avoid plastic packaging, but a lot of pasta in supermarkets is still packaged in plastic…
So I try to reuse the robust plastic bags as freezer bags! 🙂
