Freia Fine Handpaints - Obre Super Bulky
Brand Freia Handpaints
Sourced entirely from within USA, our lofty yarn has a soft hand that retains nice stitch definition. By sourcing directy from a mill we are able to keep our costs down and our environmental footprint small. This is a 100% wool yarn blend of Rambouillet, Corriedale and Columbia wool from sheep raised in Colorado. The fibers are worsted spun into a single-ply yarn that is surprisingly strong, yet still lofty. The fibers have a micron count of 22-24 making it soft to the touch, and yet it retains its artisanal nature, emphasized by our hand dyeing technique. Our sport and worsted wools are great for felting - we suggest hand washing only for non-felted items.
