Hedgehog Fibres Tweedy DK
An intriguing Tweed DK yarn where the coloured bits are their own hand-dyed waste - the ties that they take off the hand dyed skeins. They diligently collect the ties and found a mill that could process them, which means re-carding, blending and spinning into yarn again. This resulted in a lovely taupe, grey-ish tweed yarn with colourful speckles. We love how neutral it is with a colourful bit here and there. It comes in this neutral colourway and a black version called Tweedy Noir and it's just calling for sweaters and cardigans.
We applaud their attempt to minimise waste and be more environmentally friendly. On top of our thread waste they use recycled wool, making 50% of the total content recycled. We love the result! It's soft, yet wooly. Not superwash and it blooms beautifully after washing.
