Hedgehog Fibres

It's here!!!
The colours are amazing. 
I haven't had time to play with colours yet. That could be sad but it's also a good thing. If I put together colours then I would be making balls tonight to cast something on.
We received 2 yarns.

Skinny Single
Single ply fingering weight yarn, 100% Merino wool, superwash. Squishy and soft, with just the right amount of twist! Absolutely non-scratchy yarn with an internal glow. Will work for any shawl pattern, especially Stephen West designs for fingering weight yarns. Divine to have next to your skin. The dye takes especially beautifully on this base and has a lustrous sheen. The ideal yarn for that special, luxurious project!

Sold in approx. 100g skeins/366m. Gentle machine wash, delicate cycle. For best results and to prolong wear, we recommend hand-washing your projects that use this single ply base. 
Here is a link to my posts showing all the colours we have...

The other yarn is Twist Sock
80% Blue Faced Leicester wool and 20% nylon, superwash. Hard-wearing fingering weight yarn with a high twist in the ply. Great stitch definition, best suited for sock knitting. That tight twist will keep precious hand knit socks in shape wash after wash after wash. Soft, yet durable and machine washable. Best of both worlds!
Sold in approx. 100g skeins/365m. Machine wash, 30°C. 
The colours coming in Twist Sock are
-Boombox
-Bramble
-Genie
-Shiver
-Villian
