Freia Yarns

In the past I talked about Freia yarns. These yarns take a lot of time to dye. The natural coloured yarn is knit up on a knitting machine. Then it is dyed, ripped out, washed and balled. By doing this every ball only repeats the colours once. There are never colour breaks in the yarn so the striping will always match from ball to ball.

We have the yarn in worsted and lace weight. There are six new colours coming as well as new patterns.

Tina originally designed this pattern in Noro (we had a sample in the store) and she has reknit it in her Freia.








It's time to put my feet up and relax. Tomorrow morning is going to be early again. I'm meeting Amy from madelinetosh before the show. I can't wait to see the new colours.

Irene-it isn't hard to make. Just knit and purl. It is worked from side to side.

Wendie-I don't know if the pattern is available online. I will check when I get home-limited Internet while away.
