Koigu Painter's Palette Premium Merino, know by many as KPPPM, is a squishy, fingering-weight yarn 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, our stellar fulfillment team 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**
