Modal showing image
Hand-dyed in County Cork, Ireland, each unique Hedgehog Fibre colorway is inspired by company founder, Beata Jezek’s, personal style. The signature colorways range from dark & moody to fluorescent & vibrant.
A wonderful alternative to mohair, Alpaca Boucle is a luscious blend of super soft alpaca & silk. Fall in love with this lofty, fluffy, textural beauty. Another wonderful feature of this yarn is that it is shed resistant due to tiny loops that hold the fibers & keep them attached.
Knit alone or hold with another yarn to add a soft halo and/or bulk up yarn weight. Hold double for extra fluffy knits. Versatile for garments, scarves, shawls, hats and other accessories
