The Story of Harvest Yarn

October 27, 2020
Harvest Yarn by Urth Yarns is organically hand-dyed in Southeast Turkey using natural ingredients such as roots, fruits and nuts.  
Organic dyeing is a sustainable way to dye textiles while protecting the earth from chemical waste. The process of achieving color is a lengthy and labor-intensive process. 
The earthy colors of Harvest Yarn are derived from organic substances such as pomegranates, cosmic carrots, indigo and fig.  
Need inspiration? Check out this gorgeous Mokum Cowl by Mieka John using 1 skein of each of 2 colors of Harvest Worsted
For each skein purchased, Urth Yarns plants a tree in Africa.

Make-a-Wish: Natalie's Knitting Challenge

August 03, 2020
Join Natalie's challenge and make her wish come true!

Natalie was diagnosed with lymphoma when she was  in 7th grade. She was treated at Lucille Packard Hospital at Stanford. During her treatment, she picked up knitting to pass the time. Natalie just turned 15 yrs old at the end of July and and just completed her last chemo treatment. 

Natalie's wish through Make-a-Wish Greater Bay Area is to brighten the lives of patients at Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford, and to thank her caregivers who helped her beat cancer.

Knit or crochet a teenager- sized hat. We have loads of free hat patterns here. If the hat is sized for an adult, you can use a thinner yarn and smaller needles to make it slightly smaller. 

Great choices of super soft, machine wash/dry yarn include Comfort,  Comfort Chunky.Cherub Chunky, and Cherub Bulky.   

Share photos of your hats on social media using #KnittingwithNatalie and tag Make-A-Wish Greater Bay Area and Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford for your chance to win prizes.

Bring your hats in to the shop by August 28 and we'll ship them out to Make a Wish Greater Bay Area.

If you'd like to ship them yourself, the address is:
Make-a-Wish Greater Bay Area 
1333 Broadway #200
Oakland, CA 94612

All hats will be donated to the Teen Health Van, a service within Lucile Packard Children's Hospital Stanford. 

Let's help make Natalie's wish come true!
