I would not recommend this for socks as the thickness of the yarn varies, but I would recommend it for garments. I am using this for a summer top that a pattern in a recent crochet magazine used it for and it is working up beautiful.

This was the most difficult yarn to crochet I have ever used. It kinked up immediately and constantly. I tried (1) working directly from the ball and (2) winding it into a cake using a yarn winder, but neither was even remotely satisfactory. Quality control is very suspect. The yarn goes from thread thin to bulky, undyed roving in a matter of yards. Even though I love the colors, I won't buy this again.

    Comments about Noro Taiyo Sock:

    An interesting sock/fingering weight summer (cotton blend) yarn that works up into a "texture-y" fabric - not sure I'd actually use it for socks, but effective for a light wrap, swimsuit topper etc.

    Comments about Noro Taiyo Sock:

    Not so easy to knit with as skeins are sticky. It is easier to knit if you rewind them before starting a project. However, the colors make it worth it. I have taken several color theory colors in my life. Noro's approach is unique. I use his yarn not only for the pleasure I get while knitting but if you really study the colors there is much to learn and translate into quilting and other creative projects.

      Comments about Noro Taiyo Sock:

      First of all, the volume of yarn on this ball is HUGE. One ball will make a pair of socks or more! I used it to make a tunic and loved working with it. It's art yarn so it has lots of irregularities and character which make the finished garment look very creative and beautiful. The colors are gorgeous. The yarn is easy to work with. I found it helpful to rewind it to get the inner knots out of it (the texture of the yarn tends to twist) and then to use it in a yarn bowl to promote smooth unwinding. I love this yarn!

      • Thins To Single Thread

      • Zero Stretch

      Best Uses

      • Scarves

      Comments about Noro Taiyo Sock:

      I love this yarn but it's thick and thin nature can be exaggerated for a lace weight, there are parts where you are knitting with a scant hair and have to make the decision to knit through or cut the segment out. The final effect is amazing but I would not recommend it for a garment that took any stress or needed to be washed frequently.

      Comments about Noro Taiyo Sock:

      The yarn is thick and thin, and very twisty, but it has a really interesting texture. The striping is gradual and really pretty, and each skein is really unique. You have to knit a bit gently to keep from breaking the yarn, but I really like it for socks. Some people hate the texture, but I love it.
