NEW! Tweedy Noir available in extremely limited quantities!
Hedgehog Fibres Tweedy is the latest very special limited batch yarn from the HHF design studio.
This base is a DK weight yarn and the coloured bits are Hedgehog Fibres' own hand-dyed waste - the ties that they take off their hand dyed skeins. This means that the quantity of yarn produced is limited by how many coloured ties they can save, and they save them very diligently. Over the past year since Tweedy was first released, many fans of Hedgehog have sent their leftover Hedgehog yarns back to be made into Tweedy too. It's a worldwide labour of love!
HHF has been collecting the ties for a while and they finally found a mill that could process these, which means re-carding them, blending and spinning into yarn again. The result is a limited batch of this lovely taupe to greyish tweed yarn with colourful speckles. It's beautifully neutral with a colourful bit here and there. Currently the white Tweedy is available and the black is also available but extremely limited. They're just calling for sweaters, cardigans, hats and big, cosy wraps.
HHF is always looking for ways to be more environmentally friendly and to minimise waste. On top of their thread waste they're using recycled wool in the base, making a total of 50% recycled fibre in the yarn. You'll love the result...this yarn is soft, yet woolly, not superwash, and it blooms beautifully after washing.
