Hedgehog Fibres is an independent artisan fibre and yarn dyeing studio located in Co. Cork, Ireland. Yarn dyeing started as a extension of Beata Jezek’s other hobbies, spinning, knitting and crochet. Beata could not find luxury yarns in the dark, earthy colours she wanted to wear. She founded Hedgehog Fibres in 2008, in response to the demand for her yarns from knitting friends, and now sells high-end yarn to customers and yarn stores in the USA, Asia, Europe, Australasia and the Pacific.
In 2011, Beata took on two employees, Laura Eliason and Máire O Sullivan and in Dec 2011, moved from her overcrowded kitchen to a custom dyeing studio in Little Island, Co. Cork.
