This exquisite worsted weight yarn is hand dyed in Noro's signature glorious self striping color combinations, and knits up into a superbly draped fabric with warmth to spare. Luxurious and top quality, projects knit in Silk Garden are one of a kind. Made in Japan.

Made a striped slouchy hat with 2 different skeins and it is very pretty when you do this. This is what they do in a lot of the sweater patterns from Noro too.

The Upside: This yarn has some really beautiful colors and is super warm knitted up. The Noro Stripped Scarf I made (Raverly pattern) turned out lovely.

The Downside: Both skeins I used were full of sharp small organic material that needed to be picked out every few yards (I'm not exaggerating). Plus it's very coarse. Most people would probably find it unpleasant against bare skin.

I decided I while I wouldn't recommend this yarn to a friend, I would use it again myself.

Comments about Noro Silk Garden:

I used this product in a multi-colored modular sweater so the wide swings in tints were perfect, do not think I would use it otherwise. When I put tension on the yarn to snug up a stitch, it broke, needless to say, I wasn't too happy about that.

      Comments about Noro Silk Garden:

      I purchased this yarn to knit an entralac project. While the yarn is a beautiful color and has very nice, long colorways, it also has some very big problems. It is not twisted well so unravels. It has some type of fine string sticking out all over. Wood or straw chips were throughout the skein and in one skein I had to contend with 4 knots. Also, the yarn goes from quite thick in spots to thin throughout the skein. I bought 4 skeins to make my project. I think I'm going to return the 3 I have not rolled for a refund.

        Comments about Noro Silk Garden:

        Silk Garden is without compare when it comes to making one-of-a-kind scarves that are warm, soft, and beautiful. Color changes can be abrupt and the weight can vary from thread-like to bulky within one ball, but there's nothing like a Silk Garden Scarf to make you a believer.

          Comments about Noro Silk Garden:

          I love Silk Garden for the feel and the way that the colors go together. I use multiple color ways in projects and they never clash.

          I'll be knitting along and suddenly the color way will end and there will be a knot to begin another color tied onto the yarn.
