Nuna

Nuna an unbelievably soft and luxurious yarn. The fiber blend starts with extrafine merino wool for a bit of bounce, adds mulberry silk for a lovely sheen, and then finishes off with a bit of bamboo for drape! With an amazing stitch definition this would make an awesome lace project!
Mirasol yarns are made in Peru to benefit the Mirasol Project – a group that strives to improve the lives of Peruvian shepherds (homeland of the Inca’s) through building and supporting educational facilities.
We carry about 35 colors.
Shown here are just a few of the 35 colorways we carry in Nuna.
This Merino/Silk/Bamboo blend yields 191 yards of sport weight softness
in each 50g hank.

NEW KAL!!

On Friday July 9, Julia will start her next KAL- Summer Flies! She will offer guidance on 2 patterns this time- Summer Flies and Summer Flies Again. Patterns are quite similar, one being much larger. We suggest a worsted weight yarn such as: Comfort Worsted, Neve Cotton (shown here in yellow), Worsted Merino Superwash, Madelinetosh tosh DK, Galway Worsted, or Denim DK (we just got new colors and restock). So purchase your pattern and yarn, check your gauge, and be ready to start on July 9! Both of these designs begin with the garter tab- the first thing Julia will go over.
Julia will be using a new yarn called Painted Sky- this softly drifting worsted weight wool will add more color to this design. (See Painted Sky Below)
One of our absolute favorite shawls. The 7 pattern stitch sections will keep you interested. There is also an extended border (shown above). The pattern is extremely well written, including end of row stitch counts. Requires about 380 yards of a worsted weight yarn, but we can help you adjust things to work with DK weight yarns as well.
For those who desire a larger shawl, may we suggest you try the
Summer Flies Again. The first 5 sections are the same as Summer Flies,
followed by additional larger sections.
Requires about 700 yards of a worsted weight yarn.
PLEASE POST PHOTOS!!
If you have already knit up a Summer Flies shawl, please post a photo for us on our Facebook Group Page. OR… you can email your photo to us at unwind@theknittersedge.com. Please include the name of the yarn you used.
All these photos will allow knitters to view many yarn ideas
for The Summer Flies shawls. We thank you!
