Sport weight is our new favourite gauge to work with. Sport weight works up more quickly than Fingering weight but is less bulky than DK, so it's super versatile. It can usually be substituted into DK weight patterns or patterns which call for Heavy Fingering yarn.

About The Urban Purl
Leila Bux, the founder of The Urban Purl, is a one woman show, creating colours galore on yarn and fibre from her studio in North West London.
A long-time crafter, knitter and crocheter, Leila began dyeing yarn as an ongoing extension of exploring creativity in colour.
A culturally rich and diverse upbringing in West London has greatly influenced Leila’s creativity, leading to a fascination with urban/cityscapes, the graphic imagery of urban dereliction and the colours generated by the natural processes of deconstruction (she’s not emo or morbid, promise!) that imbues many of her colourways with an urban, gritty quality. She is also known for her intricate semi-tonals, lightly peppered with speckles, that has become the brand signature.
A maximalist at heart, Leila creates darkly blended moody colours, as well as rich and vibrant hues with or without speckles. Yarn texture, dimension and handle are key factors when choosing the right yarns for her colours and Leila
