Freia Fibers Wool Sport Ombre Yarn
What Makes Wool Sport Ombre Unique?
Wool Sport Ombre is an amazing new yarn from Freia Fibers. Each ball is lovingly handpainted to create this self striping effect.
This effect is often left to machines, then when wound, the balls of yarn begin at different places in the color striation (often an issue with Noro Kureyon). That can be very annoying when you are trying to duplicate a project or create an entire garment. You won't have that problem with this collection - each ball is painted so that it includes every color in the order you expect.
About the Yarn - The fiber itself is a treat as well. Wool Sport is a blend of Rambouillet, Corriedale and Columbia wool raised in Colorado, USA! The fibers are spun to create a single ply yarn that is soft, loft yet still strong. We recommend hand washing for this delightful wool yarn unless you are using it for a felting process. Wool Sport Ombre felts beautifully!

Vibrant and popular color combinations. Enough yarn in a skein to make something lovely. This is a big step up from other mass produced self striping yarns (you know the ones I mean.)

I have wanted a reason to buy one of these the moment I discovered their existence. The colors are amazing and a unique knitting experience. I knit away trying to figure out when the color will change and I’m amazed at the color variations and how they seem all wonky as you knit (how did purple get here?), but then when you look at the final product it perfectly transitions between shades.
It’s loosely spun single ply so I keep stabbing the yarn in the middle and have to fix stitches as come back to them, but the effect is that the final product is softer and just a smidge fuzzy, which helps the color changes even more.

I've not started a project as yet but this yarn just begs to be made into a beautiful scarf or cowl. Anxious to work with it!

This is my new favorite yarn. Such pretty colors. I have a hard time deciding which ones I like best.
