about urth


Remember when you first held our yarn? That is when we shook hands.

Urth Yarns is a family owned yarn brand specialising in hand dyed natural yarns. We value the time and emotional investment that go into hand knitting; therefore appreciate your demand for a stimulative feel and yummy colours. Developing and employing innovative dyeing techniques, we aim for a love at first sight or touch, every time.

LET'S SHOW MACHINES WE ARE BETTER THAN THEM!

Mass production made us forget how to use our hands and bring out the individuality about ourselves. Human touch makes all the difference. If you knitted once, you know how cool it is. Knitting is good for the body, the mind but also for the earth as a means of sustainable clothing production. Raise your needles if you are with us!

WOMAN POWER

Our yarn is dyed and prepared locally in Turkey by skilled hands of women. Our dyeing studios are in Mersin and Istanbul.

trees for the future

We have been taking and taking. Now is the time to give back. We are happy to let you know that knitting is just another way to keep the earth green. Join us in helping Trees for the Future in their mission to provide local families with tools and knowledge to plant trees in Africa. In their words:

"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."
