Ramie is a bast family fibre. It is wonderful to blend with other fibres such as cotton or wool and is similar to linen in absorbency and density. It produces a silky sheen to fabrics.
It can be used as warp or weft when weaving or for lace knit patterns. Adding a few strands of different colours together ad depth and a garter stitch can create a three dimensional fabric.
