#koipond is an idea I've been toying with for a while .. a family of individually hand-dyed, and completely unique hanks, linked by common colours. A trip to Hong Kong a few years is indelibly inked into my memory and the tanks swarming with these revered fish.


In Japan they represent good fortune or luck they also are associated with perseverance in adversity and strength or courage. 'koi' is also a homophone for another word that means affection or love, so they also represent relationships.


Due to the methods and the process I use for these large 500g hanks, each hank will be truly individual and there will be variations between subsequent hanks.


Guernsey 5ply 'sport' weight yarn

Hand-dyed in 500 gram hanks, each hank is a OOAK batch (one of a kind!) - individually dyed, then hand washed in nothing by H2O.

240/250 metres approx per 100g (1200/1250 metres per 500g hank approx)


*These OOAK hanks will be dyed to order after the sale of these 2 initial hanks (the one with the black is currently drying, so will be ready to ship by the end of this week or early next week!). Usually, there will be a maximum 2 week turnaround time prior to shipping - to allow for dyeing, washing and drying. Please message me directly with any specific requirements and we can discuss colours prior to purchase, if you prefer!
