Galatea is the perfect combination of cool cotton and chunky finish. The cotton is soft and smooth, and a wonderful soft superwash merino, with a long-repeat colour change that results in gentle stripes or pools of contrasting or tonal shades.
Female artisans in Mersin and Istanbul hand dye every skein of yarn. They use innovative dyeing techniques in order to ensure the yarn is full of vibrant colour.

This amazing yarn is good for you and good for the world! Urth Yarns has partnered with Trees for the Future to run their Knit One Plant One scheme – for every skein you purchase, a tree is planted!
