One of the dyers that consistently catches my attention from across the pond is Hedgerow Yarns. This yarn is dyed by Jane who lives in Britain. I was able to order from this dyer a few years ago and absolutely adore the yarn – and the new colorways that Jane constantly creates. (She is particularly good at speckles, as you can see! And you know I can’t resist speckles!)
Let me tell you more about this splendid dyer….
Hedgerow is adding more and more bases every day – most recently Jane is adding more luxurious fibers to her shop. There seems to be a new one every time I go to the website! Here are some popular bases….
SW Merino Nylon Sock (Fingering – 75/25)
Merino/Nylon High Twist Sock (Fingering – 80/20)
Twinkle Toes Sock (Fingering – 75% Merino/20% Nylon/5% Stellina)
Merino Singles (Fingering – 100% Merino)
BFL Silk (Fingering – 55% Wool/45% Silk)
SW Merino/Nylon DK (75/25)
DK Alpaca Silk and Cashmere (70% Alpaca/20% Silk/10% Cashmere)
Fluff – Kidsilk Mohair Lace (72% Mohair/28% Silk)
Jane is pretty consistent in her shop updates. And if you follow her on social media, she posts regular updates to keep you informed of shop news.
Ease of Shopping
The Hedgerow site is easy to use when there is yarn in stock. When it’s not in stock, the website is a bit hard to maneuver.
Shipping is a bit pricey since Hedgerow is shipping from overseas. Plus, there are currently shipping delays due to COVID lockdowns in the UK. But once life is back to normal, Hedgerow can ship just as speedily as they used to.
I hope you will support this talented independent yarn dyer. I’m always impressed with what Jane dyes and cannot wait to see what she’ll do next. Follow her on Instagram to see all her beautiful yarn and to see what she’s up to!
