Stolen Stitches Nua
We are delighted to be adding Nua, a beautiful sportweight blend developed by Carol Feller, to our yarn line-up – it really offers something for everyone!
Comprised of merino, yak, and linen, Nua wonderfully balances softness, shine, and strength. The animal and plant fibres absorb the dye differently, resulting in stunning heathered shades that work wonderfully together. This non-superwash blend has plenty of lightness and bounce, offering great stitch definition and also working well for colourwork.
This is the recommended yarn for Carol Feller's Flying Leaves Scarf from Boost Your Knitting; you'll need 2 x 50 g skeins in each of two shades.
The designer sample is knit in shades Café Flamingo (9812) and August Storms (9809).
