Why Merino, Yak and Linen?

Merino was chosen for that instantly recognisable soft and squishy base that we know you love. Yak is a dream fibre that adds a level of silkiness that warms your fingers as you work your stitches.

And Linen?

That’s our superhero.
Linen adds a rustic charm to this unique blend. Its strength and durability allow your garments to hold their structure and be soft yet hard-wearing. It also creates those natural flecks and reduces pilling. Which we know is essential to you.

Linen also has deep connections with our Irish culture, so it’s also our way of adding a touch of Ireland to each skein.

The best type of yarn, for your project depends on your specific needs and budget. Some factors to consider when choosing a yarn include the yarn's structure, weight, fibre content and cost. 

For example, luxury yarns, like Nua Sport, are an excellent choice for cardigans and sweaters due to their softness and warmth. Cotton is often preferred for garments such as summer tops because it's lightweight and breathable. On the other hand, synthetic fibres like acrylic are good for items that need to be machine washable or for added durability in items like socks.

Ultimately, the best type of knitting yarn will depend on your specific project requirements.
