Freia Ombre Sport Expanded and Restocked

Ombre Sport New Colors 1024
We’re so happy to get more Freia Ombre Sport yarn in stock and add some lovely tonal shades in denim, icy blue, and a soft thistle.  I think quite a few of us will be sporting Wurm Hats this winter. If you haven’t seen our sample, come try it on!

What else can be knit with this lovely ombre yarn?
  • Have you seen the Inspira Cowl?  Ravelry has several examples knit with Freia and they are stunning,
  • The Radiance Shawlette uses a single skein and sets off this yarn beautifully,
  • Or how about the Harmonic Curves Tam?  Knit with the Freia and Frog Tree Alpaca Sport, this tam promises to be both unique and toasty warm.

Got some other ideas?  Drop us an email and we’ll post your suggestions.
