Knits from a Painter's Palette : Modular Masterpieces in Handpainted Yarns
For more than a decade, Koigu Wool Designs has been a revered source for top-quality handpainted merino yarn and exquisite patterns. Its wools feature a unique and rich palette that's as gorgeous as a painter's. Now, the many needleworkers who are positively obsessive about Koigu can make 25 of the company's best designs and learn more about how owners Maie and Taiu Landru achieve their amazing technicolour results. Over 100 photographs, many shot on location at the Koigu farm, showcase the special wool-dyeing process and fashionable garments, while a special essay discusses the family's background, Maie's influences and Koigu's day-to-day workings.
