    I've been a fan of Noro for a couple of decades now - I'm not a devotée of intarsia knitting, so having a yarn with a lot of color impact is a plus for me. Because I find many of Noro's yarns to be somewhat scratchy for next-to-skin wear, mostly I've made coats and jackets in the past, but the Ayatori is actually quite soft, with excellent yardage. I've made this into a scarf/shawl, and I'm very happy with the results.

    Beautiful colors

    I love the yellow/lavender/lime green color--some areas were so thin I thought it would not hold--hope the hat holds together--knits easily and looks great when done--

        I made a crocheted vest that I plan to sell, or gift to someone who likes bubble gum pink and bright green. I was expecting more subtle shades.

                        Tried #24 Ayatori. Definitely not a DK wt. Also, this color variation was like an Easter egg palate. Not for adult wear at all.

                          Watching the colors change as you knit is pure pleasure. The texture is interesting because the yarn varies in weight, but a very thin or heavy spot must be cut out. I have not tried to block or wash a project yet, but I know I'm not going to dry clean, so it may felt.
