Hedgehog Fibres | Merino DK

NZ$53.00 inc GST



Hedgehog Fibres Merino DK is deliciously squishy, soft, and wearable, and also faster to knit up! Get Hedgehog Fibres’ fabulous colourways in DK weight squishiness. It is soft enough to wear next to the skin, and offers the kind of stitch definition that works for anything from a plain sweater to eyelets and lace.

Smooth, soft, non-scratchy yarn with a tighter twist and round profile. Great all purpose workhorse yarn, next to the skin soft. Wonderful stitch definition.

Merino DK Patterns

Who doesn’t love a Stephen West shawl?  You can make the Meandering Shawl using one colour or many.
