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.

As much as I like the color ways that are offered, I would probably not buy this yarn again. It started pilling after knitting only a few rows, I should have know better than to buy a single ply. The 2 skeins I bought were of different lengths, should have weighed them both to account for shortage. I was 3 rows short of finishing my project!

Comments about 27.00 Ombre Sport:

I've used Freda refined sport yarn before and love it. I ordered a ball of sport not realizing that it was different. The regular sport yarn is bumpier and scratchy.

Comments about 27.00 Ombre 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.

Comments about 27.00 Ombre Sport:

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 27.00 Ombre 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.
