Hedgehog Fibres is an Irish artisan yarn and fibre dyeing studio located in Co. Cork, Ireland. Yarn dyeing started as a extension of Beata Jezek’s other hobbies - spinning, knitting and crochet. Beata says “Soon after I took up knitting, I realised I really wanted to create my own yarn line of soft, squishy yarns in beautiful colours. It's the colours I want to knit with, the colours I want to wear and the colours I can't live without.” Hedgehog Fibres colours reflect Beata’s personal style and range from dark, rich and earthy to crazy, fluorescent and vibrant depending on her moods - but always colours she loves! Originally from Slovakia, Beata has called Ireland her home for over a decade. In Slovakian, Jezek means hedgehog so in 2008, when knitting friends pushed her to sell them yarns, Hedgehog Fibres was founded. (No Hedgehogs are harmed in the making of our products!)
Hedgehog Fibre's Merino DK is a great all purpose workhorse yarn, hardwearing and machine washable, still next to the skin it has a lovely soft feel. The Merino DK is a smooth, non-scratchy yarn with a tighter twist and a round profile. It showcases a wonderful stitch definition. The ideal yarn for sweaters, scarves, hats, anything you can think of!
Squishy and soft, with just the right amount of twist! Absolutely non-scratchy yarn. Will work for any lace pattern, especially Stephen West designs for fingering weight yarns. Colours shift beautifully from one to another. Randomly dyed to prevent striping or pooling, as much as possible, these yarns create a variegated effect that looks good in plain stockinette or advanced stitch motifs.
A brand new blend brought out by the amazingly talented hands of Hedgehog Fibres. This 17.5 mic Merino brings out the hues of the hand dyes in such a vibrant way, and the high twist ensures a crisp stitch definition to really show off those colours.
