The most popular and famous Hedgehog yarn base, and for good reason. 21.5 micron Merino wool, softly spun, non-scratchy yarn. The perfect balance of soft and durable, the dye takes especially beautifully on this base. The ideal yarn for accessories, especially Stephen West designs for fingering weight yarns. It is fantastic for shawls, scarves, baby items, hats and more! It can also be held double for a DK project which makes a soft, supple fabric with even more variegation. Mulesing free. Hand-dyed in Ireland.
