Uneek Dk is a beautiful hand-dyed self-striping merino yarn from Urth Yarns. It is incredibly soft and the colours are intense – simply a joy to knit.
You only need one skein to knit the Show Off Chevron Cowl and the pattern is available as a free Ravelry download.
Uneek DK is one of many stunning yarns brought to us by Urth Yarns I am delighted to be able to stock their yarns as I fully support their company ethos. Urth Yarns is a family owned yarn company specializing in hand dyed natural yarns. The company values the time and emotional investment that go into hand knitting and appreciate the demand for a stimulative feel and amazing colours. They develop and employ innovative dyeing techniques and aim for a love at first sight or touch, every time.
Urth yarns are dyed and prepared by skilled hands of women at studios in Mersin and Istanbul.
The company recognises that knitting and crochet are good for the body, the mind but also for the earth as a means of sustainable clothing production. In addition, every skein of Urth Yarns plants a tree in Africa:
“Planting trees provides families with more than just food. It provides income, empowerment, unity, leadership, education and even saves lives. When we can teach people to value themselves and their environment, they see amazing improvements in their standard of living.”
