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. And, for the first time since debuting our very first “Flux” yarns, we’re mixing up the formula: previously available only in 50g balls, we’re now doubling the yardage for our Flux self-striping colors in the Merino Fingering.

For our customers who’ve loved our merino/silk blend but wanted something loftier,or loved our wool/nylon fingering but wanted something softer, Freia Fine Handpaints Merino Fingering rounds out our family of gorgeous yarn singles.
