Beautiful end product, but twists terribly

By Kugeldog

from Pasadena, CA

Pros

  • Beautiful colors
  • Super soft

Cons

  • Breaks easily
  • Twists Badly

Best Uses

  • Scarves
  • Shawls
  • Sweaters

I loved the end product, but it was a pain in the *** to use. It twists badly, and I ended up having to untwist the skeins by winding a ball of yarn, and wrapping a rubber band around the ball and letting the ball hang free to untwist itself. I did that for the entire skein, for every skein. Even then, I still had to do untwisting during the knitting process. But the preparation of untwisting did make the knitting go much faster. If you do this, be sure to not untwist too much, or the yarn will break off. (You'll learn by experience what is too much.)

The other problem is that when there were yarn joins (knots), Noro did not make an effort to join up colors that matched. So, I ended up having to wind the balls of yarn with a long tail hanging out from the beginning of the ball (the inside), so that I could match up the yarn for continuity of color.

The yarn is super soft, and has an interesting texture of thick and thin, along with the beautiful colors, and long color changes. I'm going to make a second sweater in a different colorway, so I guess it wasn't too painful to use. The end product is well-worth the effort.

Beautiful yarn!

By Wench34

from Anchorage, Alaska

Pros

  • Yardage Durability

Cons

  • Occasional Yarn Joins

Best Uses

  • Sweaters scarves

A beautiful yarn I found trying to knit sweaters for summer. Blocks well, and you can unravel it with no problem. Really love the yarn, would like to see neutrals colorway and some without common brown shade in most offerings.
