I'm always on the look out for quality sock yarns that come in numerous fun colors. While on vacation in Ireland, I found a new one that I am just in love with-Hedgehog Fibres!
Hedgehog Fibres is an Irish artisan yarn and fibre dyeing studio located in Co. Cork, Ireland.
Yarn dyeing started as an extension of Beata Jezek’s other hobbies - spinning, knitting and crochet. Beata says “Soon after I took up knitting, I realized I really wanted to create my own yarn line of soft, squishy yarns in beautiful colors. It's the colors I want to knit with, the colors I want to wear and the colors I can't live without.” Hedgehog Fibres colors reflect Beata’s personal style and range from dark, rich and earthy to crazy, fluorescent and vibrant depending on her moods - but always colors she loves! Originally from Slovakia, Beata has called Ireland her home for over a decade. In Slovakian, Jezek means hedgehog so in 2008, when knitting friends pushed her to sell them yarns, Hedgehog Fibres was founded. (No hedgehogs are harmed in the making of our product!)
Our newest socks will all be made of this wonderful yarn-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!
