Hedgehog Fibres is Here!


Hedgehog Fibres is an Irish artisan yarn and fibre dyeing studio located in Co. Cork, Ireland.  We have the sock yarn available in the following colors:  Teacup, Pod, Monarch, Boombox, Budgie, Opalite, Monet, Pistachio, Genie, Malice, Banana Legs, and Pheasant.  The colors range from dark, rich and earthy to crazy, fluorescents and vibrant, they are all fantastic.


Yarn dyeing started as a extension of owner Beata Jezek’s other fiber hobbies – spinning, knitting and crochet.  Originally from Slovakia, Beata has called Ireland her home for over a decade.


In Slovakian, Jezek means hedgehog so when she began selling her beautiful hand dyed yarns, Hedgehog Fibres was founded. -B

Honey Cowl


The Honey Cowl by Antonia Shankland is one of my all time favorite knitted cowl patterns.  This is one of five that I have made over the last few years.  I’ve made wide to thin cowls and short cowls, the one pictured is the long cowl which I like because it can be wrapped twice around your neck for extra warmth during cold winter months.


The pattern is simple and knits up quite quickly, alternating from a slip purl row to a knit row and repeating.  The finished project gives a nice textured, dense waffle-like fabric and works up nicely in a tonal yarn like the one pictured.  It also looks good on both sides so you won’t need to worry about how it looks when you wrap it twice.  I used two hanks of Malabrigo Rios a wonderfully soft superwash merino wool.  The yarn is absolutely a dream to work with, it’s super soft and you can give it as a gift without being concerned about it felting.  To check out this free pattern on Ravelry just click here. -B
