Used this for a scarf with another yarn, beautiful unfolding of color that looks like a color wheel. I like the variegated thickness/thinness of the yarn as it adds to the texture of the scarf. It is perhaps not the softest yarn but I wouldn't call it scratchy.

I always have an issue with sock yarns where the thread is broken in production and then continued indiscriminately without any consideration for continuity of overall color design. I was disappointed to notice that one 100g skein makes easily a pair of socks, one green and one purple. The color design is so 'long', that you won't get two repeats out of one skein - which makes a difference if you are keen on symmetry. The only way around that would've been to purchase two skeins, but would I have gotten two of the same repeat? Probably not. Yes, the colors are gorgeous, but to my taste the texture is awful, harsh, spiney, and gauge of yarn inconsistent. You wind up with sloppy, droopy socks that need handwashing (now, seriously, how sensible is that?). This was my first and last experiment with the much revered Noro yarn, there are more consistent yarns with much more reliable production quality and at least equal if not better, color designs out there.

Beautiful, but thicker than anticipated

Comments about Noro Silk Garden Sock:

I'm knitting a pattern that calls for "sock yarn", and while this is labeled as sock yarn, the Silk Garden is thicker than most sock yarns, including other types of Noro. It's gorgeous and worthwhile anyway, but you may wish to use a larger needles size with this one.

        While called sock yarn, I would not user for socks as the weight is not consistent, but works we'll for wraps and shawls. Is especially good for working entralac patterns.

        I made a poncho from the Vogue Issue 5 magazine. This yarn was perfect for the project because of the weight, colors and self stripping qualities

            I love the colors in this yarn, but it is not as soft as I prefer. I used this yarn to make the Boxy Cardigan in the Crochet Noro book and the sweater looks fantastic. The yarn felt better to me after a couple of washings.

              Comments about Noro Silk Garden Sock:

              Using this yarn to make a garter stitch sideways sweater with short rows, alternating two contrasting colorways. Love the colors! My only complaint, and I think this is the nature of the yarn, but there are times when the ply of the yarn gets so thin that it becomes a very thin lace weight. The yarn is not very strong at that point, so I ended up having to break off those sections in some places and not knit them into the sweater. That made for a lot more ends to weave in. But the colors and the overall feel of the yarn make this well worth the effort.
