Koigu KPPPM Yarn Reviews

Koigu Painter's Palette Premium Merino, know by many as KPPPM, is spun from the finest merino sheep in the world and hand painted in stunning, one-of-a-kind colorways. The beauty of hand dyed yarn is that each hank is a unique work of art and no two are exactly the same. Please be aware that colors can vary hue, coloration, and saturation, even within the same dye batch, and that the colors shown on our website are a representation of each colorway. Although these exceptional hand painted colorways can vary significantly from dye lot to dye lot, we always do our best to keep the pictures on our website up to date, and if a color you order does not reasonably match the picture posted, we will be sure to contact you before shipping your order.

There are literally hundreds of beautiful hand painted colorways, and to help you navigate their extensive palette, Koigu has a color numbering system to assist you in finding exactly what you're looking for. **PLEASE NOTE THAT THIS SYSTEM IS A GENERAL RULE AND SOME COLORS DO NOT FIT WITHIN THIS SYSTEM**

Best feel and beautiful vibrancy in color 5 out of 5 (5 out of 5)
This yarn is exciting making the tiny owls knits Beekeepers quilt and each honeycomb is a beautiful myriad of colors. Also the feel is soft yet Durable very durable while still holds a delicate essence.

Gorgeous colors, but may be very different from the picture 4 out of 5 (4 out of 5)
The review title says it all. It may be worthwhile calling JBW before placing an order to get more detailed information as to how well the picture represents the actual color of the skein.

Use caution when choosing colors 3 out of 5 (3 out of 5)
I ordered 3 skeins each of a different color 2 arrived looking exactly the way they appeared on my computer, but the last was so dark it was unusual. Still searching for the 3rd to make the Linen Stitch Scarf!
