What Makes Ombre Worsted Unique? Ombre Worsted 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. Ombre Worsted Yarn 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. Ombre Worsted Wool felts beautifully!
