Minikins - from Freia Fine Handpaints
Minikins shrink down your favorite Freia Fine Handpaints ombre colorways with a single ply, fingering weight base. The 100% cruelty-free merino wool is sourced in the USA for a Made in the USA product from sheep to skein.
The smaller yardage means a quicker gradient, perfect for smaller projects like hats, cowls, and mitts. And for colorwork accents! We particularly love to combine it with a simple pattern so the beautiful colorway can take center stage. We're seeing customers use Minikins in colorwork accessories like Camille Descoteaux's Alaska Hat, Erica Heusser's Passerine Hat, and the 2-color version of Jared Flood's Lucerne Hat.
