Hedgehog Fibres - Merino DK
This month we couldn't help swoon a bit when we unpacked our boxload of Merino DK from Hedgehog Fibres, an Irish artisan yarn and fibre dyeing studio located in Cork, Ireland. Founded by Beata Jezek, a spinner, knitter and crocheter, Hedgehog Fibres colours reflect Beata’s personal style and range from dark, rich and earthy to crazy, fluorescent and vibrant depending on her moods!
Ball Weight: 115 g / 4 oz
Ball Length: 200 m / 220 yds
Knitting Gauge: 22 sts = 10cm / 4"
Needle Size: 4.0mm (US 6)
Yarn Fibre: 100% Merino wool, superwash
Care Instructions: Gentle machine wash, delicate cycle.
Beata's superwash Merino DK was our choice because we wanted to try out Hedgehog's colourful palette in patterns that were quicker to knit and warmer to wear. DK is ideal for sweaters, scarves, hat, mittens or anything else you can think of. Smooth and soft merino with a tighter twist and a round profile, each 115g skeins has approximately 200 meters and is easy to care for - machine wash on gentle and lay flat to dry.
