Hedgehog Fibres Tweedy

$ 29.99

Tweedy is here, fresh from the mill! 

It's a tweed yarn and the coloured bits are hand-dyed waste - the ties that are taken off the hand dyed skeins. Hedgehog saves them very diligently and it's a labour 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 colourful speckles, and the latest version, "Noir" on a black base with colourful speckles. *We are sold out of the original Tweedy version and have the "Noir" colorway left.*

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.  

*****************************************

Beata of Hedgehog designed a new large, flowing shawl when Tweedy first appeared.  You can make "Fortune Cookie" with 4 skeins of Tweedy. Tweedy is a large, generous wrap to keep the chill off on cold nights, with a beautiful knitted lace motif that is lace on both right and wrong sides, but it is not too difficult. Finished off with a ribbed edging.

It’s a very generously sized shawl. You can make a smaller version easily by omitting a repeat (or two!) from the body section. "Fortune Cookie" is a free pattern on Ravelry.
