Imagine a yarn that is incredibly soft to touch, available in an irresistibly bold self-striping palette, supports unemployed local woman as well as comes from a company that makes a commitment to helping the environment whenever possible.
Does this all sound too good to be true?
Well, it isn’t.
Urth is a company located in Turkey, that we are so happy to welcome into the Estelle Yarns family, and we are certain that once you get a skein of their yarn into those hands of yours, you will agree with us. It is simply gorgeous! All of the community work and environmental initiatives that they are involved in, are just the cherry on the already delicious cake!
Uneek is a yarn that is produced by Urth, available in three different weights; fingering, worsted and chunky. Composed of 100% Superwash Extrafine Merino, the Uneek collection of yarn is available in a range of alluring self striping shades. With some colourways being tonal, some subtle, and some vivid and loud, there is a colourway for every knitter, every crocheter, and every winter coat out there
Uneek Fingering contains 400 meters of Superwash Merino Wool, and is available in 14 gorgeous shades. Since there is no nylon in this yarn, we advise you to be careful if attempting to knit socks in it, as it may wear out quickly! However, socks are not entirely out of the question. Nor are shawls, lightweight mitten liners, slouchy hats, baby sweaters… the list goes on!
Still not sure what to knit with it? Also available from Urth, using the Uneek Fingering is a free pattern for this Swing Tank Top. Simply click this link to get your hands on it today!
Uneek Worsted is a 100 gram skein of yarn, containing 200 meters. Also available in 14 shades, this yarn is perfect for winter accessories, cardigans and pullovers. Or maybe you’re feeling inspired to knit a pair of mittens for everyone in your family this Christmas! One skein will produce one pair- so you had better get cracking! The holidays will be here before you know it.
And finally, the Uneek Chunky knits up at 8 sts / 10 cm, and has 60 meters on a 100 gram skein. Once again available in fourteen beautiful self striping shades, it is tempting to want to knit a pair of socks in the fingering weight, with a matching hat in the worsted weight and a coordinated cowl in the chunky. Wouldn’t you agree?
