Our Koigu Travel guide for your next exotic knit-cation!
Having a Local Yarn Store nearby that you frequent almost exclusively is the best! You know exactly where all of your favourite yarns are (like Koigu, of course), the shop owner knows your name and asks how your most recent project is coming along, etc. So lovely!
But what if you're going on a trip, you want to explore, and you still need your dose of Koigu yarn shops and fiber cuddling?!
We have Koigu all over the world and so many of our shops are in beautiful locations! Here a handful of them, along with a stunning spot to include in your trip to each city with a Koigu yarn shop!

The Koigu Collector’s Club is a monthly limited edition, one-of-a-kind themed colourway of KPPPM hand dyed by Taiu Landra, Co-owner of Koigu Wool Designs. Created exclusively for LYS’s that carry Koigu and have become part of the inaugural group of Koigu Collectors! Each dyelot only has 21 skeins ever available, with a specialty label so you can spot it quickly in your LYS!
The Koigu farm is nestled down a side road in Southern Grey County Ontario, Canada. The farm's landscape of rolling hills, pond, bush and fields create a beautiful canvas for creation. One of the many reasons why Maie Landra originally purchased the farm 45 years ago was the inspiration she drew from it, whether that be for her pen and ink drawings, tapestries or even the begining of the dying process. Colour and inspiration can be felt throughout the Koigu Farm and area.
Canada's celebration of 150 years has put a spotlight on the beautiful and varied landscape which Canada is built on.
Translating a landscape to canvas or even the painting of yarn is up to the creator's interpretation. We have gathered photos together which we believe show the most iconic and stunning aspects of our farm, many of which are sunsets! It’s easy to see Koigu’s surroundings reflected in our yarns, colours and garments.
