Koigu Collector’s Club: Fall Fair Midway.

The Koigu Collector’s Club continues! Each month, we’ll receive a batch of KPPPM in a limited edition color dyed especially for a select group of local yarn stores that carry Koigu.

Dyed on KPPPM, Koigu’s signature fingering weight superwash merino wool, Fall Fair Midway is ideal for making shawls, cowls, baby sweaters, and of course, socks.

This eye-catching colorway is gray with splashes of rainbow brights, conjuring dark night skies with bright neon lights.

You’ll find this limited edition colorway of Koigu KPPPM in our fingering weight section while supplies last – it’s already been a popular one, so call us if you’re anxious to get your hands on it!
