Introducing Bulky and Lace Merino!

Posted on July 15, 2016 | 0 Comments Koigu Bulky and Lace

At this year's Vogue Knitting Live customers asked if Chiagu would carry Koigu Bulky Merino and/or Koigu Lace Merino. I then posed the question to the newsletter subscribers.  In each instance the responses ran about 50-50, there was no clearcut winner.

After playing with sample skeins of each weight, I decided to get a small amount of yarn in both bulky merino and lace merino. I have 3 colors in each weight and they are in limited quantities. You can find them here and they are 15% off until July 31st.

I hope to order more of each, let me know what colors you would like to see.

July's New Colors

Posted on July 13, 2016 | 0 Comments July's New Colors

These are July's new colors (from left to right): P224, P330, and P950. They are 15% off until July 22nd.


When I saw P224, dye lot 134, for the first time my mind immediately thought "Cherry blossoms!". There are beautiful ranges of pinks with touches of red. It is gorgeous on its own (shawls anyone?) or paired with navy or with cream for a striped scarf.


Initially P330, dye lot 86, reminded me of fall colors but as I walked around my neighborhood I saw very tall sunflowers in the exact yellow, gold, and brown/black of this color. Perhaps a ribbed top that takes you from late summer into and throughout the fall season?


And P950, dye lot 87, reminds me of the beach.  It's not a white sand beach but a tan beach with bits of color all over.  I can see this as a lightweight, loose top - maybe a v-neck with sleeves that go past the wrist.

Don't forget to read the next post - we are introducing some other Koigu products!

June's New KPPPM Colors

Posted on June 20, 2016 | 0 Comments

These are June's new colors (from left to right): P142, P150B, P412 and P815. They are 15% off until June 27th.

P142 reminds me of wine, red wine. The streaks of gold contrast well with the pink, maroon and dark violet colors. I would love to see this as a cardigan.

P150B is all about speckles.  This combination of colors would look great for a large project, such as a sweater or a light blanket.

P412 has a lovely combination of medium to dark blues with a hint of green.  This would make a great hat or a pair of socks for the men in your life.

P815 is such a happy color.  Possible my favorite one this month.  I can see making a cowl or hat for the winter.  You'll smile every time you wear it.
