Hedgehog Fibres Sock is their most popular and famous yarn base, and for good reason. The perfect balance of soft and durable, the dye takes especially beautifully on this base. Fingering weight yarn, 90% Merino wool, 10% nylon, superwash. 21.5 micron Merino wool, softly spun, non-scratchy yarn. The ideal yarn for accessories, especially Stephen West designs for fingering weight yarns. It is fantastic for shawls, scarves, baby items, hats and more! It can also be held double for a DK project, which makes a soft, supple fabric with even more variegation.
Please note: This yarn is hand-dyed in small batches. Colours may vary from skein to skein, even within the same dyelot. If you buy more than one, we will do our best to match them up. Please ensure you buy enough to finish your project as dyelots may vary. We take great care in photographing our yarns, however, colours may vary slightly from monitor to monitor.
