Nunki by Anny Blatt is an amazingly soft and luxurious aran weight yarn. With a fiber content of 29% Yak and 71% Wool, this makes for extremely warm projects. Yak is an extremely warm fiber and is said to be at least 10% warmer than merino wool. Cold winters are absolutely no problem if you have mitts and a hat made of Anny Blatt Nunki.
The yak and wool blend creates a gorgeous heathered effect, which makes the depth of color amazing. Any project you chose will have a very sophisticated look, in addition to being extra warm.
The colors that Anny Blatt Nunki come in are deep, but also slightly muted. We think of them as sophisticated colors, and fall and winter colors.
Hats, mittens, scarves and cowls are among the best projects to make with this wonderful yarn. Any gift made with this yarn is sure to please the recipient, if you can stand to give it away!
Many other projects work great with Anny Blatt, for instance lap blankets, shawls, and sweaters.
If you need a yarn for a felting project, Nunki will work! Felted Gloves would be simply amazing in this yak/wool blend. If you don't want your item felted hand washing with cold water, and laying flat to dry is the way to go, that will keep your item in top condition for a very long time.
