Kokon Bleu Merino Fingering

It’s thanks to the beautiful Kokon Bleu* Fingering Weight range that Michelle du Plessis’s dye work has first been noticed.

This merino wool comes from Argentina. Once more, the dyer sourced mulesing-free** fibers. Actually, Michelle du Plessis really pays attention to the way the yarn she uses has been produced, selecting only ethically sourced yarn.

This particular colour comes in three different dyeing effects:

  • Indigo: a semi-solid indigo colour, lightly nuanced;
  • Speckled: indigo blue speckles on a natural base;
  • Tie-Dye: a solid indigo blue with undyed spots, giving a seedling effect once knitted.

The aspect of those yarns once knitted is very delicate. You can see how well the Speckled and Semi-Solid Indigo work together in the sweater pattern called Nell, designed by Eri (the Ravelry page of this pattern is here). The beautiful interpretation of one of her testers shows what the Tie Dye looks like once knitted.

What you need to know about this yarn:

  • Weight: Fingering
  • Composition: 100 % superwash merino from Argentina;
  • 400m / 100g skeins;
  • a range of 3 different dyeing effects;
  • Needles 2,25 mm – 3,25 mm;
  • Gauge: 28 stitches per 10 cm;
  • Handwash.

Here, we can see our Soften shawl knitted with one or two of those yarns. Just imagine what it would look like with the beautiful Tie Dye combined to a white, a silvery grey or even a deep red, or using both the Semi-Solid and the Speckled colours! For us, it has been love at first sight with this Kokon Bleu Fingering Weight… Is it the same for you?

*Bleu means “blue” in French.

**Mulesing is a violent chirurgical operation used by some sheep breeders. If the wellness of our woolly four-legged friends is part of your concerns, you will want to pay attention to this when buying yarn.
