Description

Nua from Stolen Stitches, 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 the knitters fingers will simply love. Finally, linen, a fibre with a deep history in Irish culture, adds strength and durability. Nua is a non-superwash which creates a lighter yarn with a bit more bouncer, making blocking easier and helping projects (especially garments) to hold their shape nicely.

Although sport weight yarns are less common in Europe, they are the perfect weight for fine colour work and create lighter sweaters. But it still knits up quickly enough so that big projects don't take too long.

The blend of fibres work together to create rich and interesting colourways., and the rage of 10 subtle shades are inspired by Carol's home in West Cork, Ireland.

This yarn comes in 50g skeins, great for stripes, colourwork and garments, the yarn is also perfect for hats, shawls and mittens, as well as crochet projects.
