I love knitting with Koigu KPM and KPPPM. Both have that perfect amount of twist to make lovely stitch definition. They yarn is wonderfully consistent in thickness, lack of knots, and overall quality.
Since each skein is handpainted, there can be some variance in dyes. Just plan ahead when you begin a project and enjoy that!
This particular shade is absolutely stunning: a very dark charcoal grey with occasional pale grey stripes. It's really not a solid, but it certainly is lovely.
I purchased this because it looked like a good match for my guest bedroom, which is decorated in teal, chocolate brown, turquoise, and mustard. I couldn't have been happier with the selection.
The project knitted up very quickly, and changing yarns and colors always made it interesting. The mohair does shed, so just a warning if you have allergies. I still need to block it, and I'm hoping that helps.
There are many lovely color options, but this one is truly stunning. It's probably one few people would pick, but in person it is glorious.
I made a cropped vest out of this yarn last year, and it knit up beautifully. It's also a very quick knit because of size. I didn't have any splitting or shedding issues, either. I hope to make a larger project with it again.
I just finished the fair isle mittens in Debbie Bliss Magazine #5, and this yarn is simply heavenly. I have allergy problems with a lot of cashmere and merino, but no such issues here. The softness of the yarn is amazing. Stitch definition is very solid as well.
I've already picked out another project in this wonderful yarn.
