Stolen Stitches by Carol Feller Nua Worsted is a beautiful worsted weight/light Aran yarn designed by Carol Feller with a palette of colours inspired by the landscape of Ireland. Nua Worsted is a unique blend of merino wool, yak and linen, which combine to create a wonderful heathered effect.
The blend of fibres in Nua Worsted 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 Worsted 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.
Nua Worsted has the perfect balance between pleasure, speed, beauty and durability.
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.
