Do you struggle choosing the right yarn for your fall projects?
You’re not alone! Honestly, it wasn’t until I started learning the hard way that particular yarns are more appropriate for some projects over others. If you’ve ever had a saggy sweater or fuzzy pair of mits, you may have found a yarn that isn’t right for that project.
Rather than learn the hard way, let’s take an educated approach to choosing the right yarn for our fall projects. That way we can save ourselves time, effort and money!
I’m joined by Kersti and Taiu from Koigu Yarns, a family owned business for three generations. They start off sharing the story of the family business and then we dive into common fall projects and the yarns that ideal for each. Along the way you’ll find many golden nuggets about things such as dying yarn and planning a color palette!
- The Koigu story
- What goes into the production of their yarn
- What is required to dye wool
- Fall projects such as socks, sweaters, hats and scarves and the type of yarn that’s great for each
- What Koigu has going on this fall

Red Heart Yarns Loop-it!
Loop-it yarn is a brand new type of yarn that doesn’t require hooks or needles! You can create gorgeous projects with only your fingers. I’m thinking this is a great after school projects for your kiddos and even a great change of pace to break up the repetitive motions of knitting and crochet.
