Koigu is best known for its 100% Merino fingering (sock/4-ply) yarn called KPM in the semi-solid colours and KPPPM for the multi-coloured yarns. The colours are highly saturated, extremely intense. It’s a yarn with a high twist, giving superb stitch definition and making the colours pop.
Using different multi-colourways in one project creates amazing effects. Charlotte's Web is a very well-known Koigu pattern. When I knitted it for the first time, I grabbed 5 different multi-colour hanks without doing any colour-matching. The resulting shawl is the one in the pictures. It's been so popular, that I've always got a list with me of the shades I used as, despite my efforts to encourage people to make their own colour-combinations, it's still the most popular colour-combination we sell.
