What’s the best way to beat the winter blues? Speckled, colorful yarn, of course! A brand-new shipment from Hedgehog Fibres has landed in space, ready to brighten even the darkest of days. Included are both the Twist Sock base and Skinny Singles base. We also have an incredible number of color options available in each base, so be sure to check out the lists below.
Twist Sock screams socks, but would also be perfect for lightweight accessories and garments. Twist Sock is unlike a lot of other sock bases available because it is a blend of Bluefaced Leicester wool and nylon, which is a bit more durable than merino. It has a lovely tight twist, which provides added strength, and is superwash.
