Hedgehog Fibres x Madelinetosh, two industry-leading hand-dyed yarn companies, have joined forces to develop a limited-edition yarn.
“With this yarn we have created a revolutionary new model for upcycling and collaboration,” said Laura Zander, CEO of Madelinetosh. “Sustainability is a growing priority in the knitting and fashion worlds and by incorporating bright Madelinetosh flecks into this product, we were able to recycle yarn remainders while also prioritizing collaboration over competition. Now more than ever, it’s time for women-led companies to come together, disrupt old norms, and bring something beautiful into the world.”
At HHF we are always looking for ways to be more environmentally friendly and to minimise waste. On top of thread waste we are using recycled wool, making 50% of the total content recycled. I love the result! It's soft, yet wooly. Not superwash and it blooms beautifully after washing. 230m/100g.
