The same amazing combos we put together for the Butterfly Shawl work just as well for the dramatic Eyes on U shawl by DJ Logan.
"Knitting the “Eyes” shawl is never boring even though it’s entirely done in Garter Stitch. The eyelet border throughout, the various sizes of short row Eyes and the surprisingly unique colour variations keeps your interest peeked at all times."
The beautiful shawl is made with 2 skeins of Uneek Fingering hand-dyed self-striping yarn, and 1 skein of Harvest Fingering, a hand-dyed with roots, fruits & nuts.
Both yarns are made from 100% squishy extra-fine merino wool. Colours are sometimes subject to subtle variation since each harvest is different.
Urth Yarns utilise an innovative hand-dying technique carried out by a skilled workforce of women in Mersin and Istanbul, Turkey.

REMEMBER WHEN YOU FIRST HELD OUR YARN? THAT IS WHEN WE SHOOK HANDS.
Urth Yarns is a family owned yarn company specializing 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 colors. 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. Knitting and crocheting are good for the body, the mind but also for the earth as a means of sustainable clothing production. Raise your needles and hooks if you are with us!
Our yarns are dyed and prepared by skilled hands of women at our studios in Mersin and Istanbul.
TREES FOR THE FUTURE
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. Every skein of Urth Yarns plants a tree. Join us in helping Trees for the Future in their mission to provide families with tools and knowledge to plant trees in Africa. For more information, visit our Trees page.
"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."
Inspiration is everywhere and we draw ours from the local landscape, people, flora and fauna, as well as contemporary fashion and international trends.
