Hedgehog Fibres Tweedy

$ 29.99

Tweedy is here, fresh from the mill! 

It's a tweed yarn and the colored bits are hand-dyed waste - the ties that are taken off the hand dyed skeins. Hedgehog saves them very diligently and it's a labor of love.

Hedgehog found a mill that could process these, which means re-carding them, blending and spinning into yarn again. The result is lovely grey-ish tweed yarn with colorful speckles, and the latest version, "Noir" on a black base with colorful speckles. 

Besides the thread waste, recycled wool was used, making 50% of the total content recycled. The result is soft, yet wooly and not superwash. It blooms beautifully after washing.

This yarn FLIES out of here.  We are only able to get a limited amount!

Tweedy is 230m/100g of 50% Falkland Merino Wool, 37.5% Recycled wool and 12.5% thread wasted.

Planetary sweater

"Planetary" by Melanie Berg is the celestial, science-y sweater you’ve been waiting for. The planets align in perfect orbit around the yoke of this lovely sweater.

Lines, dashes, and dollops of color playfully encircle the collar, and the seamless, top-down construction makes for a simple knit.
