How to Read Your Koigu Skein Label

How to Read Your Koigu Skein Label

We know that sometimes you may buy skeins of Koigu, planning a beautiful project to make, full well meaning to make it that very night, but something comes up and that skein gets hidden in  your yarn stash for many moons. Months later, your crafty hands start to itch again and your Koigu finally gets pulled back out for a new idea! You then realize you need to order more of that colourway of yarn and you're not sure exactly what those letters and numbers mean on the label...

It's very simple and we're here to help!
