Each Uneek Sock Kit contains two identical pre-wound cakes of hand-dyed, self-striping yarn for luxurious, matching stripey socks. The yarn is a blend of 75% extrafine superwash merino and 25% nylon. The yarn cakes come in a box which makes a Uneek Sock Kit a great gift if you can manage to let it go.
Uneek Sock Kits are 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.”
