Where Creativity Is American Made...
SolMates Kits / Freia
In 2010 I developed gradient yarns -a color method unlike any multi-colored yarn that existed before, beginning one of the most marked and copied trends to hit the yarn market of this decade. I straddle the line somewhere between an indie dyer and a large yarn company, providing a unique hand-dyed yarn, but at a scale large enough to cater to Local Yarn Stores globally . The custom-spun fiber I use is soft and lofty (or smooshy as I prefer to call it). It has a wonderful rustic character to it, without the itch.
In our Flux self-striping yarn the balls begin and end in the same color, making it simple to just keep knitting on a bigger project without having to dig to match colors from ball to ball (and waste yarn in the process). The Ombré yarns have gorgeous extra long gradients - that cannot be replicated in mass production - with a lush depth of color only we can bring as hand dyers. Our semi-solids give a knitter enough flexibility to combine all sorts of colors in a project in a base to match the other yarns we supply.
