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.

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.

Comments about Freia Fine Handpaints Sport:

I used two balls of the Lichen colorway to knit the shawlette, "Arlington", designed by knitterrain (Emily Ross). I alternated every two rows to ensure that the color runs were long enough to knit the entire shawl with only one repeat. I used my favorite needles, Signature Stilettos in US 6, which are great for lace but not for softly twisted plies that like to separate.

I had expected the hand of this yarn to be more like Madeline Tosh Merino Light, a single ply. But the feel of this yarn was more like cotton dishcloth yarn. Much softer than Noro, though, and when held at normal tension the tendency to crimp was manageable. I also knit with the Freia Ombre Lace, which has too much nylon and is not nearly as soft as the sportweight.
The colors weren't as dramatic as I had hoped, but overall I'm happy with this yarn, and love the finished object.

        I bought Freia fine handpaints and used it for shawl. It knit really nice and the colors were exactly what I expected. I would buy this yarn again. Webs was really good about getting it to me as soon as the color came in.

        Comments about Freia Fine Handpaints Sport:

        I made a cowlette called "Zuzu's Petals." (Found on Ravelry as a paid pattern) The colors were amazing and I loved the long changes in-between. Just as I would get bored of the color...a new one would start to mix in.

        The only thing is I wish the price was a little lower. However, I don't mind splurging once in awhile for something special.

                      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!
