Nua Worsted is a blend of merino, yak, and linen created by designer Carol Feller of Stolen Stitches. Each of the 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. 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.
