This is our newest single-ply fingering yarn, and our third yarn in a luscious, custom-spun, cruelty-free 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 200 gram “Yarn Bombs” measure 860 yards, with enough yarn for a good oversized shawl. They will truly shock and awe you!

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.
