October Yarn Update - It finally happened...

Posted on October 22, 2015 by Susie Dippel | 0 Comments

Many apologies for the update delay.  The next blog post will explain how the annual New York Sheep and Wool Festival caused the delay in updating the website.

When this Koigu order arrived it wasn't quite what I expected. However you will notice that almost all the colors work together - and they will work well in a gradient project.


I purposely chose P426 even though long time mini skein club members may remember getting a P426 in the January 2015 shipment.  The January mini skein was extremely dark, almost like purple thrown onto of a blue violet.  This P426 is much closer to the color Koigu tries to produce.


Beautiful, beautiful tones of blue.  This will work well for projects for guys as well as gals.


I am not a green person but I love this color way.  Definitely a pair of socks for me!  And it's another great color for both men and women.


To me this is a very saturated version of P426 - they will work well together is you are looking to make a project that shifts from light to dark.


Yes, it happened - I mistakenly ordered P928 again because the colors looked different in the catalog. But since Koigu is handpainted it is not exactly like the P928 I have in stock already.  This batch (renamed with a D at the end for "dark") has stronger purple and yellow and is blended with an olive oil green. It is a very strong color for the cooler months.
