  • $15.50 each

Our most recent shipment from Koigu is Apple Crisp, a variegated colorway that summons the season in shades of pink, beige, burgundy, and red.

What to make with these pretty skeins? Special socks are always a nice use for KPPPM – try Noma Ndlovu’s “Cable & Lace Socks” and “Little Boxes Socks,” or Dawn Henderson’s “Bonfire Socks” and “Block Party Socks.”

What to make with these pretty skeins? For a small project, try Dawn Henderson’s “Bonfire Socks” and “Block Party Socks,” or Laura Chau’s “Serviceberry Mitts.” Koigu KPPPM would also make a sweet baby sweater – if that piques your interest, check out Tin Can Knits’ “Flax Light,” Churchmouse’s “Baby Wrap Sweater,” and Joji Locatelli’s “Garter Stitch Baby Cardigan.”

Koigu Collector’s Club: Rainbow Mountain.

The Koigu Collector’s Club continues! Each month, we’ll receive 21 skeins of KPPPM in a limited edition color dyed especially for a select group of local yarn stores that carry Koigu.

Our most recent shipment from Koigu is Rainbow Mountain, another playful variegated colorway. These special skeins are predominantly pale yellow, streaked and spotted with whimsical pops of gold, orange, red, and lime green.

What to make with these pretty skeins? For a small project, try Dawn Henderson’s “Bonfire Socks” and “Block Party Socks,” or Laura Chau’s “Serviceberry Mitts.” For a larger project, Stephen West’s “Syncopation Adoration Shawl” came to mind, since Koigu plays so well with others. Here are a few ideas!

Koigu Collector’s Club: Glass Art.

The Koigu Collector’s Club continues! Each month, we’ll receive 21 skeins of KPPPM in a limited edition color dyed especially for a select group of local yarn stores that carry Koigu.

Our most recent shipment from Koigu is Glass Art, another playful variegated colorway. These special skeins are predominantly silver gray, streaked and spotted with whimsical pops of purple, aqua, pink, and blue. It looks a lot like last month’s Barn Art colorway, which sold out in record time!

What to make with these pretty skeins? For a small project, try Laura Chau’s “Serviceberry Mitts,” knit with just one or two skeins of Koigu KPPPM, depending on the size. Want to play with more than one color? Check out Fatimah Hinds’ “Pigdale,” a striped hat with a bit of texture. We still have some Koigu KPPPM Ballet in stock, which pairs well with Glass Art.

Glass Art also pops against a true solid, like these three in Brooklyn Tweed Peerie.

For a larger project, check out Rebecca McKenzie’s new “Francy Shawl,” or pair Glass Art with a semisolid hand-dyed yarn for Tamy Gore’s “Kymani” shawl. Here are a few color ideas with Fyberspates Vivacious 4ply!

  • Koigu KPPPM: $15.50 each
  • Fyberspates Vivacious 4ply: $24.20 each
  • Brooklyn Tweed Peerie: $15.25 each

Koigu Collector’s Club: Barn Art.

The Koigu Collector’s Club continues! Each month, we’ll receive 21 skeins of KPPPM in a limited edition color dyed especially for a select group of local yarn stores that carry Koigu.

Our most recent shipment from Koigu is Barn Art, a playful variegated colorway. These special skeins are predominantly pale gray, beige, and ivory, streaked and spotted with whimsical brights. Pops of purple, aqua, pink, yellow, blue, and green make for lively skeins up close, though from a distance they read as almost neutral.

Unpacking them, my mind went right back to the design work of Tamy Gore, whose Ravelry page radiates multicolored shawl inspiration. “Ashbrook” caught my eye and captured my imagination, so I’ve created color combinations with that particular pattern in mind.

Here, Koigu KPPPM is paired with Marion Foale 3 ply Wool, a smooth superwash wool that comes in sophisticated solid colors. For “Ashbrook,” you’ll need 2 of each, and that gives you enough yardage to assign the colors any way you like – Gore uses slightly more of color 2 than colors 1 or 3, so put your favorite in that C2 spot!

KPPPM is $15.50 per skein, and Marion Foale 3 ply Wool is $9. Get in touch if you’d like to place an order – we can ship these pretty skeins directly to you or hold your purchase here for pickup while our storefront is temporarily closed!

Koigu Collector’s Club: New Day.

The Koigu Collector’s Club continues! Each month, we’ll receive 21 skeins of KPPPM in a limited edition color dyed especially for a select group of local yarn stores that carry Koigu.

Our most recent shipment from Koigu is New Day, a rich variegated colorway. These special skeins are streaked with orange, rust, brown, and gray, with highlights of plum and hints of pale blue. Unpacking it, I was reminded once again of Kelbourne Woolens Perennial, a line of fingering weight solids that plays well with hand-dyed yarns like Koigu.

Tamy Gore’s “The Drifter” is a perfect way to showcase these yarns, a garter and slip-stitch shawl which calls for about 414 yards each in two colors. That means 3 skeins of Koigu KPPPM, at 175 yards each, and 1 skein of Kelbourne Woolens Perennial, at 497 yards each.

Ewe Ewe Fluffy Fingering was also designed as a playmate for multicolored yarns, and has its own unique color palette – here are a few that complement New Day!

KPPPM is $15.50 per skein, Perennial is $26, and Fluffy Fingering is $10. Get in touch if you’d like to place an order – we can ship these pretty skeins directly to you or hold your purchase here for pickup while our storefront is temporarily closed!

Koigu Collector’s Club: Fantasie.

The Koigu Collector’s Club continues! Each month, we’ll receive 21 skeins of KPPPM in a limited edition color dyed especially for a select group of local yarn stores that carry Koigu.

Our most recent shipment from Koigu is Fantasie, a lively variegated colorway, streaked with ivory, bright yellow, orange, green, and pink. Unpacking it, I was reminded of the highlighter-bright shades of Kelbourne Woolens Perennial, and thought how well these two fingering weight yarns would play together.

As the folks at Kelbourne Woolens have written on their blog, Perennial was meant to team up with hand-dyed yarns, to complement speckles and variegates. One of the projects featured on that post is Cape Cod Knits’ “Shawl of Serenity,” which calls for 800 yards of fingering weight yarn – 400 yards of colorful hand-dyed yarn, and 400 yards of a complementary solid. That means 3 skeins of Koigu KPPPM, at 175 yards each, and 1 skein of Kelbourne Woolens Perennial, at 497 yards each.

KPPPM is $15.50 per skein, and Perennial is $26, for a project total of $72.50. We’re happy to ship these pretty skeins directly to you while our storefront is temporarily closed – get in touch if you’d like to place an order!

The Koigu Collector’s Club: Ballet.

The Koigu Collector’s Club continues! Each month, we’ll receive 21 skeins of KPPPM in a limited edition color dyed especially for a select group of local yarn stores that carry Koigu.

Ballet is the most solid shade we’ve yet seen from Koigu, whose skeins are normally streaked and speckled with all kinds of colors.

This gently variegated pinkish purple shade is perfect for rendering more intricate stitch patterns than variegated yarn usually allows. Think Caitlin Hunter’s “Tegna” (which would require 5 – 8 skeins of KPPPM), Isabell Kraemer’s “Kyler” (7 skeins), or Melanie Berg’s “Qwist Hat” (2 skeins).

We’re happy to ship these pretty skeins directly to you while our storefront is temporarily closed – email us if you’d like to place an order!

Koigu Collector’s Club: Refuge.

The Koigu Collector’s Club continues! Each month, we’ll receive 21 skeins of KPPPM in a limited edition color dyed especially for a select group of local yarn stores that carry Koigu.

January’s colorway is a little late, but still so welcome – a variegated bouquet of pastel shades with streaks of turquoise, pink, and ivory. This whimsical colorway is dyed on Koigu’s classic KPPPM, a fingering weight superwash merino.

We have an abundance of special Koigu colors right now.

Pick three to make Churchmouse’s “Koigu Linen Stitch Scarf” pattern, which blends disparate variegated shades into a harmonious fabric that almost looks woven.

Koigu Collector’s Club: Utopia.

The Koigu Collector’s Club continues! Each month, we’ll receive 21 skeins of KPPPM in a limited edition color dyed especially for a select group of local yarn stores that carry Koigu.

KPPPM is a fingering weight superwash merino, hand-dyed in vibrant colors by mother/daughter team Maie and Taiu Landra on their farm outside of Toronto, Canada.

This superwash merino yarn is speckled and streaked with shades of peach and plum, a sweet combination that Koigu calls Utopia.
