Nua Sport is a unique blend of merino, yak, and linen. Each of these fibers 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 fiber with a deep history in Irish culture, adds strength and durability.
Nua Sport 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.
Based in County Cork, Ireland, Stolen Stitches was set up by knitwear designer Carol Feller. Her yarns feature fantastic imaginative blends, expertly created to ensure a wonderful result. The yarns are dyed to gorgeous tones, making the finished product look and feel terrific. We are big fans.
