    I really love this yarn. I ordered Silk Garden Lite in colors 2012 and 2038, both are absolutely gorgeous and different as night and day. I started knitting with 2012 and it is wonderful to work with, soft with great drape.

    Three of the four balls I purchased had knots int the yarn. I was able to hide them in the linen stitch scarf I was making but find it ridiculous that Noro would sell such poor quality. Loved the intense colors but the colors didn't match description provided. Overall, have purchased better for less.

      Comments about Noro Silk Garden Lite:

      Good price, beautiful colors, nice blend.
      It is a single strand (not plyed) and it easily untwists and then breaks too frequently.
      I would only recommend this to a friend after explaining its "weakness".

                    I didn't like the texture or the color. It's okay, but I would not have selected it if I saw it in a store.

                    Service and delivery comments:

                    No complaints about delivery. It's just hard to judge the yarns without touching them.
