60% Merino, 20% Yak, 20% Linen, and 100% You
Scroll down for more details.
Nua Sport can be described in two words - cosy luxury.
Nua’s secret lies in its unique blend of Merino, Yak, and Linen, designed with cables and textured stitches in mind.
Why these three fibres?
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.
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.
If you are looking for a light and airy yarn with a bit more bounce, Nua is a natural choice. Nua is worsted spun, creating a lighter yarn perfect for fine colourwork while also helping garments to hold their shape more easily. Whatever you want to knit accessories, garments, or heirloom pieces, Nua yarn creates cosy pieces that last.
Oh, and the yarn is a dream to block!
