Koigu KPM Solid Yarn - 1170 Reviews

Koigu KPM Solid Yarn - 1170
1170 shown $14.00
Koigu Premium Merino (KPM) Solid colors are pure hand painted beauty! The beauty of hand-dyed yarns is that each hank is a unique work of art, so please be aware that there can be a variation in coloring, hue and saturation, even within the same dye batch. Each dye lot is "painted" individually and then heat is applied to fix the dyes. Dye lots are rinsed and hung on rods to dry.

Overall KPM Solid Rating: 4.8 out of 5 stars (4.8 based on 40 reviews)

My favorite yarn 4 out of 5 stars (4 out of 5)
I really do love this yarn and its sister yarn, KPPPM. The colors are fantastic, it rarely splits and is just a pleasure to work with. I'm not giving it a top rating because it seems that nearly all of the KPM skeins I've purchased in the last year or so contain many more undyed/white areas in them than previously was so. In any event, I love to mix these solid colors with coordinating KPPPPM to make truly unique items. And I so appreciate the wide color assortment and great service at Jimmy Beans Wool.

Color great 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
I love the colors in their solid yarns. There is just enough light in the yarn to show off all your hard work in your knitting projects.

I really love this yarn which I bought to take a class. It knits up very well. I've bought 4 more skeins since then.
