Nua Sport 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 knitter fingers will simply love. Finally, linen, a fibre with a deep history in Irish culture, adds stength 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.

Although sports weight yarns are less common, it is light enough to do fine colour work and create lighter sweaters, but still knits up quickly enough that big projects don’t take too long.

The blend of fibres also work together to create rich and interesting colorways. The linen absorbs dye differently which allows the yarn to have a natural tweed effect, and the yak is the key to the subtle colour palette. It adds a natural light brown to the base yarn so all the colours are just that little bit darker in the finished yarn.
