    Miss-matched Skeins

        Best Uses

          Comments about Freia Fine Handpaints Sport:

          I ordered 2 skeins of the same color. Had to wait for it since it was back-ordered. Webs sent two completely miss- matched skeins. colors not even close to the same. Great yarn but Webs service is terrible.

          AMAZING yarn! Spun & Dyed in USA!!!

          By Keri P.

          from New York

          Pros

          • Beautiful Color Changes
          • Great yardage
          • Soft

          Cons

            Best Uses

            • Hats
            • Sweaters

            Comments about Freia Fine Handpaints Sport:

            I am looking to find more yarns made in the USA and was SO glad to find this one!!!

            I used this product to make some amazing hats and a cute little baby sweater. the color changes were amazing. The yarn slips easily through fingers while knitting. I have never seen such amazing color changes….

            I saved bits from multiple skeins and made the most incredible pompoms too! I have purchased MANY colorways of this….Love melon, and tijuiana teal. The denim was a nice soft blues ombre- very cool….I used that for the sweater! You can play around with multiple balls to manipulate the color changes further. This yarn is SO fun!

            WEBS- PLEASE GET MORE OF THESE FREIA YARNS! I want to try some of their thicker versions and they have SO many amazing colorways! Please, please, please!!!!

            Thanks!

              A Feast for Eye and Hand

              By Celeste

              from West Hartford, CT

              • handcrafted
              • Lofty
              • Made in USA
              • Soft

              Cons

                Best Uses

                Comments about Freia Fine Handpaints Sport:

                Saw Freia Handpaints yarn in the Autumn 2011 issue of Vogue Knitting and was happy to discover it is carried by Webs. I was intrigued by the pretty little bon-bons of wool in the magazine photo. The entrelac hat I am knitting is working up beautifully with this soft and lofty yarn. The wool is beautifully spun and free of slubs and knots. I love the surprise of the unwinding colors. Just when I was tiring of the mauve tones, gorgeous earthy blues and then golds were revealed...eight harmonizing color tones in all. I like that the Freia color options vary from earthy and subtle to bright and bold. I'm finding it a feast for all the senses.
