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!
