Ziggy Played with Yarn

1230_s1_lg

Counting the days to Vogue Knitting Live (Jan. 18-20), when we showcase our new “Space Dust” line from Koigu! This color splash celebrates our beloved 70s and 80s, inspired particularly by David Bowie’s “Ziggy Stardust,” though luckily the Moonage Daydream has endured and far beyond our own starry youth.

Koigu’s “Space Dust” also conjures the wild Missoni style of the day, with colors that are ray-gun glorious! We are particularly thrilled with our exclusive multi colorway Baboon, inspired by Bowie’s legendary Ziggy face paint (recall the lightning stripe)—the palette of which he took from the baboon, drama king of the monkey universe. There will be another multi and four neon solids in the series, and our 80s Street Art colorway line will be incorporated into this series as well.

We will have all this and groovy samples too at VKL, and Irina Poludnenko is making exclusive Space Dust designs for us! These colorways will be available in Koigu’s Kersti (100% Merino, 114 yds/50 gram skein, 5-6 sts/in on US #6 needles); KPM (100% Merino, 170 yds/50 gram skein, 7 sts/in on US #3 needles); and Bulky (100% Merino, 93 yds/100 gram skein, 3 sts/in on US #10-11 needles). “Freak out, far out, in out!”
