This unique and beautiful recycled yarn is Hedgehog Fibres’ solution to yarn and wool waste, which is combined with new wool to create Tweedy!
The folks at Hedgehog Fibres diligently save the ties from their own hand-dyeing process, along with collecting yarn ends from other knitters which they then go through re-carding, blending and spinning into yarn again.
From Hedgehog: We are always looking for ways to be more environmentally friendly and to minimise waste. On top of our thread waste we are using recycled wool, making 50% of the total content recycled. We love the result! It’s soft, yet wooly. Not superwash and it blooms beautifully after washing.
