Hedgehog Fibres Twist comes to us from Ireland and is hugely popular with knitters for its amazing hand dyed colour palettes. It offers great stitch definition and a tight twist that helps to keep the shape of your knitwear, even after multiple wash and wears. It’s made from a blend of 80% superwash Blue Faced Leicester wool and 20% nylon - BFL sheep are known for their long, shiny fibres, which makes yarn from their fleeces especially hard wearing.
If you want to geek out about Twist, just talk to Laura - she loves Hedgehog for knitting the FREE Very Vanilla sock pattern.
