Stolen Stitches Nua Sport yarn is a wonderful creation from renowned knitwear designer Carol Feller. The ideal blend of three fibers produces a lighter yarn with a bit of bounce and allows projects to hold its shape well. Merino Wool provides a soft, squishy, and versatile base. Yak adds a unique silkiness to the yarn that your fingers will love. Linen contributes strength and durability. The perfect choice for a lighter weight sweater and colorwork.

Carol Feller drew inspiration for the colors from her home in West Cork, Ireland. The subtle natural shades punctuated with some vibrant accent colors create a complementary inspired palette. The blend of fibers also work together producing rich and interesting colorways. The Linen absorbs dye differently allowing for a natural tweed effect. The Yak adds a natural light brown to the base yarn, so all the colors are subtle and a little darker in the finished yarn.

All in all, Nua Sport brings a balance between pleasure, beauty, and strength.

Stolen Stitches is based in Cork, Ireland, with Carol Feller at the head. Initially trained as a textile artist and structural engineer, Carol Feller is a knitwear designer and teacher. She has been widely published in books and magazine and travels the world teaching in yarn shops and fiber festivals.
