We endeavor to display color as accurately as possible but, due to monitor variations, your monitor may display the yarns differently than they appear in real life. We also attempt to display the yarns in the bases listed as often as possible. However, we source most of our photographs from our vendors, and since every color is not listed in every base the color may be represented on a base different from the one you are purchasing. Please email or call us if you have ANY questions about the yarn base and color prior to purchase! Your happiness is our every desire!
Nua 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 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.

I love this store. I would buy ANYTHING from The Sated Sheep. This particular yarn was one I wanted to try so I ordered online and got it like two days later. I like it, it works up great, but I expected it to be softer due to the fibers in the blend. Still, nothing to complain about!
Thank you so much Laurie!! I'm glad your yarn arrived quickly, and I think you may find it's quite soft after blocking, it likes a good bath! We so appreciate you taking the time to write a review and hope to be able to help you in the future!!
