An exciting yarn blend from Irish designer Carol Feller, imported from the UK by Knitnstitch.
With 10 fantastic accent colours complemented beautifully by 4 neutrals, it really makes an ideal lighter weight yarn for trans-seasonal Spring and Summer garments. And with the great blend of high quality Yak, Merino and Linen, this yarn has a special attribute - in that it has both a natural feel but is sophisticated at the same time.
Consider Nua as a substitute for those treasured Rowan colour work patterns but without the heaviness of thick wool.
Merino provides a soft, squishy, and versatile base. Yak adds a unique silkiness to the yarn that your fingers will simply love. Finally, linen adds strength, durability, drape and coolness.
