New Denver is a beautiful rural small town in the Kootenays of British Columbia, where everyone knows everyone.
The day is finally here and Koigu could not be happier. With our special edition Canada Day yarns in our shop being bought and shipped across the country and big festivities on their way, we are pleased bring to you our final 7 Canadian Koigu shops.
2 days to Canada 150! and we want to spread the Canadian love further with another 10 of our Canadian Koigu stores. Check out these lovely shops carrying our yarns across our beautiful country.
Give our wonderful Canadian retailers some love and give them a visit!
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.
The big day is almost here! 150 years of our beautiful home, Canada, is only a few days away.
Koigu is based in Grey County, a stunning area filled with green farms, fresh lakes and rock formations. Strawberry season is here and we have been surrounded by beautiful reds. We love that we have been proudly Canadian for 25 years so to mark the special occasion we hand-dyed two limited edition KPPPM yarns!
Both were created with a medley of reds featuring Canada's official Flag Red, the exact same dye used to make our national flag. One is speckled and the other is tie dyed, cheekily and patriotically named "Canada Eh" and "Oh Canada".
HAPPY CANADA DAY!
