Nona is 2-ply heavy lace weight, 50% supwerwash merino, 25% cashmere and 25% bombyx silk.

4 ounces (115g), approximately 630 yards per skein, heavier than Decima, our other laceweight yarn.

Nona, named after the Roman Goddess who is the equivalent of Greek mythology's Clotho (spinner of the thread of life), is wonderfully soft yet strong, Nona creates beautiful drapey fabrics and wonderful lace stitch definition.

Sunna is the fingering version of Nona, Birte is the dk weight version, and Verdande is the worsted weight version (all with a different fiber percentage of merino for higher-wear garments).
