Koigu Collector’s Club: Comfy Cozy and Admit One.

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. This month, we got not one, but TWO new colorways!

Koigu KPPPM:

  • fingering weight
  • hand dyed, variegated
  • 100% superwash merino wool
  • 175 yards/50 g
  • $15.50 each

Comfy Cozy is dyed on KPPPM, Koigu’s classic fingering weight merino that we’ve come to know so well throughout the Collector’s Club.

Koigu Sparkle:

  • fingering weight
  • hand dyed, variegated
  • 94% merino wool, 6% lurex – silver metallic
  • 164 yards/50 g
  • $15.50 each

Admit One is a playful pastel colorway with streaks of brighter shades and a silver shimmer. It’s dyed on Sparkle, Koigu’s metallic cousin to KPPPM.

What to make with all these Koigu Collector’s Club colorways? Just as we have two new colorways, we also have two pattern suggestions with color combinations – Anne and I each had an idea this time, and we both happened to pair up Koigu with a Brooklyn Tweed yarn!

Ankestrick’s new “Sydvester” pullover caught Anne’s eye, an intriguing slip stitch pattern combining fingering and worsted weight yarns. She suggests Brooklyn Tweed Shelter and Koigu for this project, her interest piqued by the interplay of rustic heathers and playful variegates.

I had Francoise Danoy’s “Ocean Pathways Cowl” in mind for the following combinations.

For this pattern, I selected three shades of Koigu KPPPM or Sparkle for the contrast colors, and a darker shade of Brooklyn Tweed Peerie for the background color.

Order online to snag any of the Collector’s Club colorways pictured above, with or without their Brooklyn Tweed counterparts! They’re all available for local pickup or shipping while supplies last.

Koigu Collector’s Club: Forage and Elements.

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. This month, we got not one, but TWO new colorways!

Koigu KPPPM:

  • fingering weight
  • hand dyed, variegated
  • 100% superwash merino wool
  • 175 yards/50 g
  • $15.50 each

Forage is dyed on KPPPM, Koigu’s classic fingering weight merino that we’ve come to know so well throughout the Collector’s Club. Streaked with many shades of green and a few dashes of brown and cream, Forage is vibrant and highly variegated.

Koigu Sparkle:

  • fingering weight
  • hand dyed, variegated
  • 94% merino wool, 6% lurex – silver metallic
  • 164 yards/50 g
  • $15.50 each

Elements is a moodier colorway, shades of purple and gray, along with a sparkly silver metallic thread, as it’s dyed on Sparkle, a Koigu yarn we haven’t had at the shop before.

Above you’ll see all the shades of Koigu we currently have in stock – they make a lovely rainbow together.

What to make with these pretty skeins? Knitters, consider Fatimah Hinds’ “Rinse/Repeat” socks, Purl Soho’s “Purl Beret,” Kit Hutchins’ “Barb’s Koigu Ruffle” scarf, or pick three colors for Churchmouse’s “Koigu Linen Stitch Scarf.”

Crocheters, check out Marian Nelson’s “Melrose” scarf or wrap, or Joanna J Clayson’s “Spring Cowl.”

Order online to snag the new Forage and Elements, or any of these older Collector’s Club colorways! They’re all available for local pickup or shipping while supplies last.

Dream in Color Pop Up! Club: November.

Dream in Color’s Pop Up! Club is back! Every month, we’re getting a special new colorway from Dream in Color, a Tuscon-based producer of small batch hand-dyed yarns. November has begun, and that means a new limited edition colorway is here while supplies last.

November’s Pop Up! Club colorway was inspired by dyer Veronica’s memory of childhood Christmas trees trimmed with tinsel. The base yarn is Smooshy Gold, a superwash merino with a subtle dash of metallic gold, and she’s dyed it with a festive mix of greens, browns, and reds, with a few other colors popping up here and there.

Look for this limited edition colorway in the fingering weight section here at the shop, and hurry in if you want to snag one – these special Dream in Color shades don’t last long!
