Koigu Origins, focuses on the breed, and the purpose that the wool provides to the project. Celebrating 50 years of Koigu in 2022, the southwestern Ontario-based Landra women launched a single ply, 32 micron, DK weight yarn in honour of their love of textile art that is deeply engrained in their Estonian heritage. And... all dyed in their favourite colours.
[CR]Corriedale sheep are one of the oldest crossbred sheep, originating from New Zealand. Originally crossed in the 1860s with Merino, which provides its long wool length and softness. Corriedale are a large sheep that tolerate many landscapes and can now be found globally. In terms of its wool, it is a mid-micron sheep hitting between 22-34 microns. This spin is in a DK weight that is great for outdoor garments to stay warm on a damp day.

Gotland sheep originated on the Swedish island of Gotland, thought to be brought by the Vikings. The wool produced by Gotland sheep is long, at a 29- 34 micron, producing a soft fleece. A mid-sized sheep, with a natural grey fleece, you can still find the largest pure bred population of sheep today on the island of Gotland. Mixing the Corriedale with the Gotland, creates a strong fiber and beautiful natural grey colour.
