Urth Yarns Uneek Worsted Ikat Throw Kit, finished example draped over a chair

Y'urth My Favourite

Urth's Uneek and Monokrom Worsted yarns offer fun, short waves of self-striping magic from the moment you cast on. Paired with their Harvest Worsted, all of their offerings range from vibrant and bold, to earthy and grounded; each range is dyed by hand, and their softness is, well... undeniable.

Urth Harvest Worsted, Monokrom Worsted and Uneek Worsted all boast compositions of super-squishy, 100% extra-fine superwash merino, just waiting for an extra-special fall project. We thought we might inspire you with some patterns that show it off best. AND... what we love most is you can combine colourways from each of the different ranges to create a truly unique finished piece. Choose from Uneek Worsted, Monokrom Worsted and Harvest Worsted.
