The first time we touched this incredible 100% Merino wool, we could not believe it wasn't cashmere. At just 16 microns, it's luxuriously fine and beautifully smooth to the touch. This versatile fingering weight is spun in Istanbul and hand-dyed in beautiful colors that pop. Each color represents something special you can only find in Tulsa - just like the yarn itself! A Knit Stars exclusive.

The Maya Top by Gavriella Treminio

As soon as our Sunnie saw her designer-friend Gavriella's textured sweater, she jumped on board to knit one of her own. The textured top down pullover combined with our Urth Sweet 16 is a perfect match, providing the comfort of superwash wool with enough structure to make those stitches pop. A new summer staple that was quick and fun to knit.

To make your own The Maya Top, you'll need size US 10 (6mm) needles and 2 (3, 3, 3) 3, 4, 4 skeins of Sweet 16 Superwash for a finished bust measurement of 36 (40, 44, 48) 52, 58, 62 in / 91.5 (101.6, 111.8, 122) 132, 147.3, 157.5 cm.  Sunnie is wearing a size 2 (40 in).  The pattern is available on Ravelry.

Number 10 Shawl by Lori Versaci

The Number 10 Shawl by Lori Versaci was created to capture the appeal of her favorite modern artists. This is an easy-to-knit garter stitch shawl. It is very soothing to work and provides a little extra interest as you watch the color play emerge. It begins with a center tab and then is worked in a series of 2-color stripes. Each color is joined using intarsia, which is very easy to work since you are only working 2 skeins at a time.

Amber knit her Number 10 with one skein each of each of all 10 colors of Urth Sweet 16 Superwash and a size 4 needle. 

Size: 87”/221cm wingspan; 22.5”/57cm length at center
Yarn: 1 skein each of all 10 colors of Urth Sweet 16 Superwash
