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 strength 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.
Pattern designer Carol Feller developed Nua to hit that elusive sweet spot balancing pleasure, speed, beauty and durability. She has also created a pattern collection using Nua that is available here: www.etsy.com/listing/561122357/nua-collection-volume-1-by-carol-feller
