There are so many reasons to love Freia Handpaint's Merino Fingering yarn, it's hard to know where to start. First off, the fiber: this single-ply fingering yarn is a luscious, lovely 100% merino. With a micron count of 21.5, it has an amazing against-the-skin softness for neckwear and sweaters.
Smooth, slow gradations are the signature of the Ombré color range. Each skein carefully transitions five or more colors/shades per ball, making for very long yet still dramatic color changes. We suggest working from alternate ends of each ball as you go for smooth color transitions since every ball will begin and end with different colors.
Then there's also the feel-good manufacturing: this is a mulesing-free merino, grown and spun in the United States to Freia Handpaint's particular specifications. Though exceptional stitch-definition has long been a hallmark of this single-ply yarns, the loftiness of this Merino Fingering is particularly versatile, lending itself to be stitched up in a variety of gauges without losing definition or drape.
