        The colorway is stunning, very Himalayan turquoise and pinks, I bought the number 2. It's a very lightweight yarn, wound up easily, but I suspect it would be as fragile to seam as the Shirakaba, which broke on me many times. So I am knitting a Jenny Watson cardigan- Gabriella- in one piece to avoid seaming as much as possible. No itch which is why I bought these two Noro yarns for the minimal wool content.
        This may become an addiction I can scarcely afford! except when Webs has a sale! -D.

        I love everything about this yarn, except (1) it really twists -- don't know if that is something I did when winding it from the hank, or if it just twists; and (2) it pulls apart in some of the fluffier areas. The twisting I can work with, but I have had to take out several rows and waste yarn because of the pulling apart. Consequently, I have many, many ends to weave in. Very annoying.

                    Just finished a 3 S Scarf last night. Used 2 skeins for large scarf. One skein is perfect for neck warmer scarf. Loved drape and feel of knitted fabric. Would recommend for knitted at any level.

                      I love this yarn. I love to knit with is because it changes colors and I can't wait to get to that next row to see how it looks. It does get a bit fuzzy and can be delicate, but I'm a very tight knitter so I'm hard on my yarn. The tomato color is just lovely. I'm knitting cowl with it now and it's gorgeous. Scoop this stuff up while it's on sale.

                          I cannot get enough Noro. The colors are amazing and everything I've made with it has knit up beautifully. I recommend using it to knit unique angles or shapes. I'm a fan of the funny texture and uneven weight of this yarn. It helps to hide mistakes and makes knitting with it way more interesting.

                            I made a pair of mittens from a skein of this yarn. Colors are beautiful and vibrant, and yarn is soft to the touch, however it breaks easily.

                                I really love knitting with this yarn. It works up fast, is soft and light weight, but every skein I got was full of knots. One of them had 5 and hardly any of them were within the color they should have been. It made for a lot of time piecing colors together where they should be. The sweater turned out great but it was lots of extra work. I probably won't buy this yarn again until it goes on sale.
