Nua Worsted is a heavier weight version of the original Nua yarn. Perfect for warmer garments and cosy accessories, the wonderful heathery colours can be combined for fantastic combinations.
Nua Worsted is a blend of merino, yak, and linen. Each of these fibres 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 your fingers will simply love. Finally, linen, adds strength and durability.
Nua 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.
Isabell Kraemer has designed a sweater in this yarn called ‘Mycroft’
