I used Noro Kureyon to make a throw for a birthday gift for my sister. The colors are vibrant and help create a patchwork effect. I love the way knitting with Noro surprises you...you can't really know what it will look like until it's finished and no two items will ever look the same.

I have always disliked Kureon but broke down because of this color #40. It will be a scarf worn under coat collar.Kureon feels as tho it has straw mixed in. Now on to one other Noro, Taiyo..NO straw! I am using it to make the popular Lizard Ridge Afghan..fun colors, soft interesting to knit up, Now who would like to use Kureon as an afghan, torture! Just say'in

      Yes, Noro K. is twisty and course but I expect that when using it. I love the colors and the tactile experience of working with this yarn is amazing. Every project is a mystery until it is finished and I love that.

            I will try to rinse with water and hair conditioner to soften. My granddaughter chose the yarn from the website -- loves the look, but not the feel.

              Comments about Noro Kureyon:

              I love Noro yarn, knitted quickly into a funky tea cosy and also made the slouchy using the pattern for sale online, which turned out really well. Had thought the cast on edge would roll as there was no ribbing or garter edge, but looks really good. Because it is a woven spun single ply yarn, it does not respond well to unraveling and reknitting too many times.

                      Comments about Noro Kureyon:

                      Had always wanted to try the Noro -- got a gift certificate for my yarn shop. and bought some. I used it for a scarf -- it knits in stripes, which was good to know. Scarves, fine -- other projects, maybe not. It knitted well -- but was overall a bit rough. I have been using a lot of merino,which is softer . . . I think scarves should be soft and cuddly . . .

                      But -- I certainly do plan to make some other projects with Noro Kureyon.
