The most distinctive yarns have a special air about them. We can’t quite put our finger on what exactly makes Freia Fine Handpaints so extraordinary, but we’ll try anyway.

OK, it’s actually pretty straightforward: we’re seeing the fruits of Tina Whitmore’s imagination. Her background as a photography major in college introduced her to the idea of playing with color, manipulating it, transforming it.

A rare eye for color.

Simple, unprocessed fibers.

Extra-long gradients.

A love of the unexpected.

Tina draws inspiration from pretty much every place she visits. There’s a landscape built into most of her colorways.
