Hedgehog Fibres is an Irish artisan yarn and fibre dyeing studio located in Co. Cork, Ireland.

Hedgehog Fibres colours range from dark, rich and earthy to crazy, fluorescent and vibrant, often surprising combinations but always with an amazingly gorgeous result. The Merino DK is a great all purpose workhorse yarn, hardwearing and machine washable, still next to the skin it feels soft. It is a smooth, non-scratchy yarn with a tighter twist and a round profile that gives a wonderful stitch definition. The ideal yarn for sweaters, scarves, hats, literarily anything you can think of!

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.
