Koigu Premium Merino (KPM) and Koigu Painter's Palette Premium Merino (KPPPM) are year-round favorites here at Purl Soho! Their luminous colors, amazingly versatile spin, and soft-but-durable merino fiber all combine to make Koigu Premium Merino an extraordinary yarn. Most of all, we love its hand-painted color, which is the result of very small batch sizes and a ton of expertise, creativity and love! KPM colors are lovely semi-solids, while KPPPMs are multi-colored celebrations that create marbleized fabrics with streaks and speckles of color. Use both for exquisite sweaters, one-of-a-kind accessories and heirloom baby gear. Please note: Koigu's dye lots tend to be quite different from each other, so please be sure to purchase enough yarn for your project!
