Nua Sport is a blend of merino, yak, and linen. Each of these fibers 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 adds strength 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.
This blend of fibers 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 color palette. It adds a natural light brown to the base yarn so all the colors are just that little bit darker in the finished yarn.
