Hedgehog Fibres Tweedy Noir
|Availability:||In stock (18)|
As described by Hedgehog Fibers:
A DK weight, tweed yarn and the colored bits are our own hand-dyed waste - the ties that we take off the hand dyed skeins. We save them very diligently and it's a total labour of love!
We have been collecting the ties for a while and I finally found a mill that could process these, which means re-carding them, blending and spinning into yarn again. We have a batch of this lovely taupe, grey-ish tweed yarn with colorful speckles. I love how neutral it is with a colorful bit here and there. It comes in one colorway only and I think it's just calling for sweaters and cardigans.
We are always looking for ways to be more environmentally friendly and to minimize waste. On top of our thread waste we are using recycled wool, making 50% of the total content recycled. I love the result! It's soft, yet wooly. Not superwash and it blooms beautifully after washing.
Check out original Tweedy too! The same yarn but with a grey base.
