Product Description

Nua is a blend of merino, yak, and linen. Each of these fibres contributes something special to create an amazing yarn blend.


Merino provides a soft, squishy, and versatile base. Yak adds a unique silkiness to the yarn that knitter fingers will simply love. Finally, linen, a fibre with a deep history in Irish culture, adds stength and durability.
Nua is non-superwash, which creates a lighter yarn with a bit more bounce, making blocking easier and helping projects (especially garments) to hold their shape nicely.


Although sports weight yarns are less common in Europe, I think it is the perfect weight; it is light enough to do fine colour work and create lighter sweaters, but still knits up quickly enough that big projects don’t take too long.

The Colours

 

The blend of fibres also work together to create rich and interesting colorways. The linen absorbs dye differently which allows the yarn to have a natural tweed effect, and the yak is the key to the subtle colour palette. It adds a natural light brown to the base yarn so all the colours are just that little bit darker in the finished yarn. 

 

The colours in Nua are some of Carol Feller's favourites, inspired by where she lives in West Cork, Ireland. The wide range of subtle natural shades punctuated with some vibrant accent colours create a palette of seasonally inspired complementary colours that are a pleasure to work with and to look at.
