Two new yarns from Freia landed in store this week.  We’ve been eagerly anticipating the arrival of Freia Ombré Fingering and Freia Ombré Lace since ordering them in June and we’re thrilled they’re finally here!  These are both incredibly beautiful handpainted long gradient yarns which are soft and lofty while still retaining a lovely rustic character.  Perfect for shawls, accessories, and lighter weight garments.
I look forward to posting some project ideas for these once I get home from holiday but didn’t want to delay announcing their arrival!
In the meantime, here are the yarn specs.
Fingering:
75% wool, 25% nylon
