Hi fellow knitters. I have been given four skeins of koigu KPPPM yarn, and started a capsleeved sweater for me! This pattern has a ruffle right down the front and around the neck, and I think that I will run out of this yarn when I come to the ruffle... I can't get koigu locally, and may have to order it... just wondering if any of you would know off the top of your head if I can get this yarn in your area? I appreciate any advice!! Thanks so much! I love this site!!!
Patternworks (catalogue) has Koigu. There is an LYS in my area also that sells it.
Thank you so much, Pocahontas. Will try Patternworks. I will also see if our LYS will order it for me, but they don't carry it, so not sure... will let you know how this goes!!! Happy knitting!
Koigu is a Canadian yarn. I'm shaking my head that you can't get it there <G>.
We can get it in Canada....just not in Newfoundland! :)
Ah, yes, just like New England driving directions, you can't get there from here <G>.
Wild Fibers in Santa Monica, California has a huge selection of Koigu. I'm sure they would ship if they have it. Good luck!
i have worked with koigu yarn. it is truly beautiful! be aware that different dye lots of the same color will vary drastically. one batch i had to order (also ran short), looked to be a completely different color.
Thanks to everybody for their help! I don't mind if the color is off a bit for the ruffle....I doubt very much if I will get the same dye lot! Wish me luck!
They are in Canada, so you should be able to find the yarn somewhere. Here is the contact information for Koigu:

Thanks so much for the contact information... do you know that instead of going straight to KOIGU, I starting searching sites that sold the wool.... hmmmm... must be the retirement.... not used to using brain on a regular basis!! Thanks again! I will get in touch with KOIGU directly!!!
