Koigu Bulky: A Beautiful Quick-Knitting Yarn

December 03, 2013

Koigu, a yarn company based outside of Toronto, is very well known among knitters. It has long been known for their gorgeous, hand-painted yarns, available in hundreds of color combinations. Their groundbreaking KPPPM (Koigu Painter’s Palette Premium Merino) made knitters reconsider their usual worsted wools. Knitters now have the option of using this smooth, fingering-weight, merino yarn. Each skein is an individual masterpiece, with beautiful hand-painted hues, and using it is like like knitting with watercolors. However, knitters who don’t enjoy using tiny needles (around US 3) have not yet been able to experience the joys of working with it.

UNTIL NOW! Click here to purchase Koigu Bulky at Fashionknit’s online store.

Koigu Bulky:

Koigu Bulky has all the same qualities that we love about KPPPM. It is 100% Merino Wool. It’s hand-painted in small batches. But it comes with one big difference: it’s thicker! This chunky weight yarn knits up at 3 stitches to the inch on US 10-11 needles. This means your projects will be finished much quicker.

Recommended Projects:

Our favorite items to knit with this yarn are cowls, such as Branson’s Infinity Cowl, the Vite Cowl, and #52 Infinity Cowl.


Or you can go the extreme route with Vladimir Teriokhin’s Koigu Bulky Sweater Dress from Vogue Knitting Holiday. Chic, yet cozy!
