Another of the one-of-a-kind dye lots from Koigu!
This is a great colorway in KPPPM (175 yards (160m)/ 50g of 100% merino), each skein having been hand-painted. Each dye lot could be considered an original "painting".
This is one of our Koigu Collector's Club offerings, a monthly limited edition themed colorway of KPPM hand dyed by Taiu Landra, co-ownder of Koigu Wool Designs.
There are only between 24 and 30 shops worldwide to carry these colorways.
This was intended for January but it just now arrived here. It is called Refuge, and Koigu writes of it:
Vintage & Neutral - As we continue to "break the mold " and celebrate acceptance, diversity, ethnicity, and be a better to the environment.
A note: The labels read "Refudge" instead of "Refuge." I don't know if this was a misprint or intended as a pun. Regardless this is the Koigu offering for Janaury.
As I look at the colorway I don't see many neutrals at all but I certainly see the vintage colors and they are truly awesome!
They remind me of a Victorian parlor. I see roses in varying shades as well as aquas and violet and aubergine. There are some greens (not many but enough to act as a highlight) including lime and olive as well.
This is really striking.
