There are new colours on the way from Freia Fibers.
CHAMELEON is a cooler combination of gorgeous earthy greens starting with rich turquoise running through to bright leaf green. With over 202 different species of this lizard, we're sure you'll find over 202 projects to knit with it. 
MIST brings to mind misty mornings spent knitting while the seasons transition and goes from soft turquoise to silver. This lovely, muted ombré is sure to become a favorite.
QUARTZ is the second most abundant mineral on the planet, often found in jewelry and carvings. We thought, "Why not yarn?" This delicate colorway goes from silver to rose and has a wonderfully romantic palette.
VITAMIN C (right) is a vibrant green to dusky orange, perfect for your summer and autumn knits. There's certainly more than one way to get your daily dose of Vitamin C when you have this bright, popping citrus spectrum on your needles! 
All four colours are coming in Shawl Ball.
This is our first single-ply fingering yarn, and our first yarn in a luscious, lovely 100% merino. It has an against-the-skin softness for neckwear and perfectly complements our single-ply worsted and sport offerings.  
Then there’s the feel-good manufacturing: this is a true cruelty-free merino, grown and spun in the United States to our particular specifications. 
Though exceptional stitch-definition has long been a hallmark of our 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. 
Our unique dye process also results in a very slight felting which creates a wonderfully pill-resistant fabric. Voracious Freia fans will be perhaps most excited by the upgraded yardage. These 100 gram “Shawl Balls” measure 430 yards, perfect for single-skein projects. 
There is an amazing new pattern that uses Freia Shawl Ball.
Holli Yeoh designed this shawl called Archer (pattern purchased on Ravelry)
This scarf is knit with Chameleon and Vitamin C - one ball each.

 This version is knit with Ice Queen and Mist - two balls each.

The box will also have Merino Lace in Chameleon, Mist and Quartz.
We're thrilled to announce that we've overhauled our lace yarn. Now 100% cruelty free merino, this USA spun yarn is even finer in quality and includes an additional 50+ yards in every ball at no extra cost to the customer. 
This 2-ply yarn plumps up beautifully after blocking, featuring superior stitch definition and a sumptuous drape. Each 75 gram ball measures 650 meters (712 yards), perfect for lacy shawls and scarves.
One ball of lace weight and 4.5mm needles is perfect for the Bias "Before & After' Scarf from Churchmouse Yarns (we have patterns in the store or you can purchase on Ravelry).

Peggy sent me some pictures from Camp.

It was hard going to work today.
