About Urth Yarns:
Urth Yarns is a family owned yarn company specializing in hand dyed natural yarns. They value the time and emotional investment that go into hand knitting. Developing and employing innovative dyeing techniques, they aim for a love at first sight or touch, every time.
Dyed and prepared by skilled hands of women at their studios in Mersin and Istanbul these yarns are rich in color and hand worked throughout the process.
Mass production made us forget how to use our hands and bring out the individuality about ourselves. Human touch makes all the difference. Knitting and crocheting are good for the body, the mind but also for the earth as a means of sustainable clothing production.
Trees for the Future:
With Urth Yarns knitting is just another way to keep the earth green. Every skein of Urth Yarns sold plants a tree. Partnering with Trees for the Future in their mission to provide families with tools and knowledge to plant trees in Africa is behind each purchase you make.
