Stinging nettle is an herbaceous plant and often grows to about 2 metres ( feet) in height. The plant can spread vegetatively with its yellow creeping rhizomes and often forms dense colonies. The toothed leaves are borne oppositely along the stem, and both the stems and leaves are covered with numerous stinging and non-stinging trichomes (plant hairs).

The idea is not a new one either- nettles have been used in food, fabrics and even medicines as far back as the 16th century. Some notable properties of nettle fabric: Despite it’s armored exterior, the fibers inside are surprisingly ideal for textile production. The fibers are pliable and a good length to be spun into yarn.

The best time to harvest nettles is the first few weeks after they come up in the spring, before they grow to be a foot tall. Wearing gloves, pick the first two or three pairs of leaves from the tops of plants. Carefully place nettles into a paper or plastic bag for transport.

Surely, this introduction to the poet’s oeuvre will go some way towards rectifying that. The distilled essence in this volume is powerfully heady stuff; one can take additional pleasure in the fact that Reaney’s book-length poem, A Suit of Nettles, is due to be published in early by The Porcupine’s Quill.
