Freia Ombré Sport is a gorgeous single ply that is available in wonderful ombre colors. As your project progresses, the color will change. Great for interesting garments and accessories.  

Hand-dyed yarns have subtle variations in colors that are natural and may vary from skein to skein. There may be differences between pictures shown and the yarn you receive. To ensure the best results for your project:
  • Buy enough yarn for your entire project at one time.
  • When using hand-dyed yarn in your project work two rows from one skein and two rows from another skein to give an overall blended effect.

If you have any concerns about your hand-dyed yarn, please contact Customer Service for assistance in returning or exchanging your yarn.

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 FREIA FINE HANDPAINTS Ombre Sport:

Love love love this! The colors are outstanding and both this and my previous lace weight is just wonderful to work with! Colors are so gorgeous that I don't want to do anything complicated to take away from them...simple shawls to show off the ombré effect

Beautiful colors very soft

Verified Reviewer

Pros

  • Sof, colorul

Cons

  • Pills a bit

Best Uses

  • Scarve, shals, ponchos

Comments about FREIA FINE HANDPAINTS Ombre Sport:

I treat myself to this yarn when my budget allows as it's so lovely and soft. I would caution that this yarn won't do for socks or mittens as it does pill after normal wear and laundering, and the ombre color pattern takes some manipulation to get pairs to match (which for me has required purchasing two skeins and lots of unwinding and rewinding). This yarn, when used for shawls or scarves or ponchos, does better and such projects are always delicate and beautiful. It's such a pleasure to see the ombre colorways unfolding as you knit. I adore this yarn but it is limited in its use.

Pros

  • Works up beautifully

Cons

  • Not long enough for bigger projects

Best Uses

    Comments about FREIA FINE HANDPAINTS Ombre Sport:

    I love the look and feel of this yarn. The only downside is that each ombré color in the skein is not long enough to even make a large shawl.

    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 FREIA FINE HANDPAINTS 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 FREIA FINE HANDPAINTS 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.
