FEATURED YARN: Hedgehog Fibres

FEATURED YARN: Hedgehog Fibres
FEATURED YARN: Hedgehog Fibres
Hot off Paula's needles this week is Toward North Hat (Ravelry link) by Asita Krebs Made with Hedghog Merino Aran in Zephyr, one ball of Kid Seta in Blush and topped with a pom pom from Yarnboler.
With over ten years in the Indie Yarn scene, HHF (Hedgehog Fibres) is well loved and knit with all across the world - and for good reason! This Ireland-based yarn is colorful, soft, and a treat to knit with. We are excited to carry 3 Hedgehog Fibre bases.

Twist Sock

31 colours to choose from.

Hedgehog Twist Sock is 80% Blue Faced Leicester wool and 20% nylon, superwash. Hard-wearing fingering weight yarn with a high twist in the ply. Great stitch definition, best suited for sock knitting. That tight twist will keep precious hand knit socks in shape wash after wash after wash. Soft, yet durable and machine washable. Best of both worlds!


And you know how much we love pairing yarns with mohair! I couldn't resist getting a fingering+mohair sock on my needles. She used Wildcard and Tabitha from Woolerton Estate Yarns and Simplingo sock pattern. Any DK weight sock pattern would work, and the combinations are endless!


And if socks aren't your thing, how about this Le Pouf (Ravelry link) by Beata Jezek, an absolutely gorgeous Hedgehog fade cardigan (I want to make one so bad!!)

Merino Aran

Hedgehog Merino Aran is 100% superwash merino aran-weight yarn perfect for soft sweaters. It provides great stitch definition for cables and perfect for quick accessories. We have 18 colours for you to choose from, pairs beautifully with mohair and a yarnboler pom pom!

Or choose two colours for a super warm squashy brioche hat! Harlow Worsted (Ravelry link) by Andrea Mowry.

A simple knit/ purl textured hat, this free pattern, Copy.Cat C.C Beanie (Ravelry link) by Emily Ingrid would look fabulous in the speckled and variegated colourways.

For a crochet hat version, this maker made a Bistro Beanie (Ravelry link) by Jenn Wolfe Kaiser and this shows of the speckles and colour changes so nicely.

Ryan wearing an Electric hat

Ryan was ahead of the game and a couple of weeks ago bought a skein of Electric in Merino Aran and Navy in Kid Seta and kindly brought it to show us last weekend. Topped with a beautiful pom pom too!


This is definitely one of the lines we are most excited for-- a DK tweedy yarn using recycled yarn scraps! In two simple colors, original and noir, scrap flex give this yarn subtle pops of color. Each 100 gram skein contains 50% Falkland merino wool/ 37.5 Recycled wool/ 12.5% Thread waste. 

I've already made a crochet hat, Rocky Shore (Ravelry link) by Emma Zobel and have aspirations to make a sweater in Tweedy noir. The first batch we had in stock flew out the door and we are happy to have a fresh batch available for you (and for me!)

About the Dyer

If you haven't followed the story of Beata Jezek (Jezek meaning hedghog in Slovakian), it is one that definitely reflects the dream of every new yarn dyer! What began from dyeing yarn in a bathtub transformed into a bootstrapped company that now employs a multinational team of mainly women who are mothers and young creatives.

Hedgehog Fibres prides itself with small batch, quality controlled yarn that comes in colors they want to knit with-- and we do too!
