          Comments about Freia Fine Handpaints Lace:

          I loved the colors, though the color changes were more abrupt and less gradual than I thought they would be. I knitted it up into an Ishbel . The stitch definition in blocked lace is gorgeous. It is a little rough feeling on the hands, and while its fine for neck wear, I wouldn't use it on projects meant for prlonged skin contact

          Delivery was insanely prompt

            Comments about Freia Fine Handpaints Lace:

            This is the first lace yarn that has enough substance that I can tolerate knitting, and I look forward to the lovely color changes, which also helps to get the project done faster. I tend to abandon projects if I get bored, but Friea never bores me! The sport weight is also a great product and is a bit more versatile. All great stuff!!!

                am knitting a shawl with this - it has beautifull, long colorg changes and the colors in this colorway are very deep and rich.

                A joy to knit

                By Karla

                from Halifax, NS

                Pros

                • Dyed Evenly
                • Good Weight
                • Nice Texture

                  Comments about Freia Fine Handpaints Lace:

                  The yarn is crisp and strong and dyed beautifully. It's a joy to knit. I think it would be perfect for a beginning lace knitter as the weight is not too fine and it's easy to pick up an accidentally dropped stitch.

                    Always searching for creative freedom to come up with even more fun projects to make and wear. I'm mostly focusing on head, neck, shoulder coverings; unique pieces to accessorize or providing comfort for the wearer.
                    Very happy what is on my needles! I've completely fallen in love with Freia Lace (its texture and long color transfers) and I think you will too.
