Tweed DK yarn and the coloured bits are our own hand-dyed waste - the ties that we take off the hand dyed skeins. We save them very diligently and it's a total labour of love!
We have been collecting the ties for a while and I finally found a mill that could process these, which means re-carding them, blending and spinning into yarn again. We have a batch of this lovely taupe, grey-ish tweed yarn with colourful speckles. I love how neutral it is with a colourful bit here and there. It comes in one colourway only and I think it's just calling for sweaters and cardigans.
We are always looking for ways to be more environmentally friendly and to minimise waste. On top of our thread waste we are using recycled wool, making 50% of the total content recycled. We love the result! It's soft, yet wooly. Not superwash and it blooms beautifully after washing.
Madelinetosh Yarns has partnered with Hedgehog Fibres to bring you two, that's right TWO limited edition colorways made using Tosh Merino Light waste yarn! The Tosh Team gathered scraps of TML + other Tosh yarns (or Unicorn Sprinkles as we like to call them!) and sent them over the pond to have them blended in to the Tweedy you know and love. This is a limited edition partnership so get yours before they're gone! The MadTosh + HHF include 12.5% Madelinetosh thread waste instead of 12.5% of HHF Thread waste.
