Although Canadian dyers Taui and Kersti now head up the team at Koigu, their family history of spinning/hand dying goes back a generation to Harry and Maie, when they purchased a farm in 1972 in Chatsworth (close to Toronto). In the early days, Maie and Harry's daughter, Taui helped with the farm including spinning/dying. Eventually, the mother/daughter team built up the company to what it is today. Maie's granddaughter, Kersti, now works beside her mother.
Their signature yarn, KPPPM (Koigu Painter’s Pallette Premium Merino), took the yarn industry by storm and today, there is still nothing like it in the industry. They have the 100% merino wool spun to their specifications and their dying technique is so unique, it is distinctly Koigu.
We thank Koigu for their donation of “Paint Cans”. Paint cans come with 5-25 gram mini skeins with project patterns for both knitting and crocheting. The colors are perfectly coordinated with a fun presentation. You might want to also check out their Pencil Boxes for fun, coordinating colors of fingering weight yarn. If you haven’t tried Koigu yet, what are you waiting for?
