To our welcome party for Hedgehog Fibres, today from 2 pm - 5pm!Why the name 'Hedgehog'? Beata Jezek, founder of Hedgehog Fibers located in Ireland, is originally from Slovakia and Jezek means hedgehog; we love these little tidbits of information from small independent companies!We are delighted to have three of Hedgehog's most popular bases in the shop!Twist Sock is a 2 ply 80% Blue Faced Leicester/20% nylon with a tight twist which gives it great stitch definition and helps garments keep their shape wash after wash.Beata's 4 ply Sock is 90% soft merino/10% nylon. This base takes color especially well and is ideal for any fingering weight project!Skinny Singles is a fingering weight yarn that has a shimmery sheen. It is especially cushy and soft; perfect for making an everyday project into a keepsake!Jenny is making the Play Date cardigan from tincanknits for her soon-to-be-born grandson using Twist Sock in the Dove colorway. She loves how this yarn is so easy to knit; it flies off the needles so smoothly! The tight twist means no splitting and this wee sweater will keep it's shape through many a wash.We can't wait to show you the amazing array of colorways and unique traits of this beautiful superwash yarn, today at our Welcome Hedgehog party from 2pm - 5pm.We hope you can stop by, have some food and drink, and enjoy the fun!
