“Hedgehog Fibres is an Irish artisan yarn and fibre dyeing studio located in Co. Cork, Ireland.
Yarn dyeing started as an extension of Beata Jezek’s other hobbies – spinning, knitting, and crochet. Beata says “Soon after I took up knitting, I realized I really wanted to create my own yarn line of soft, squishy yarns in beautiful colors. It’s the colors I want to knit with, the colors I want to wear and the colors I can’t live without.”
Hedgehog Fibres colors reflect Beata’s personal style and range from dark, rich and earthy to crazy, fluorescent and vibrant depending on her moods – but always colors she loves!
Originally from Slovakia, Beata has called Ireland her home for over a decade. In Slovakian, Jezek means hedgehog so in 2008, when knitting friends pushed her to sell them yarns, Hedgehog Fibres was founded. (No Hedgehogs are harmed in the making of our products!)”
