A fabulous yarn for a simple knit sweater. Just use stockinette for your main stitch as patterns would not show. The coloration and dying are outstandingly beautiful. After you wear it several times the angora blooms and creates a fabric in which the stitches almost disappear. The end result is a show stopper garment.

I ordered the beautiful lavender color of this yarn and when it arrived I was so disappointed. It turns out that the color pictured is not the real color. There is a small amount of lavender tones in this yarn but it is mostly PINK. The pink does not show up in the website photo. If it did I would not have ordered this color. It is unfortunate that ordering yarn online often results in colors that are different than shown.

    Comments about Noro Nadeshiko:

    I love this yarn. It has a great feel and is beautiful when knitted. Unfortunately, probably too warm for Texas. I had the sweater for me but looked horrible on me. Looked stunning on my mom so now I don't have to make her anything for Christmas.

    Can't wait to try more NORO yarns.

      Comments about Noro Nadeshiko:

      I love the colours of this yarn. The chunky weight means that it knits up fast. The angora in it does shed, a lot, and makes for a soft stitch so intricate patterns would not be highlighted. I did have the yarn fall apart in one spot and had to unpick a few stitches to join it.

        This yarn is very esthetically pleasing to work with and made knitting the library cape a joy to make. I've never used Noro yarn before and fell in love with it.

            I LOVE this yarn! The colors are gorgeous and flow beautifully from one to the next, and the texture and softness are lovely. The angora makes hats, mitts, and scarves extra warm and cozy--great for cold weather wear. I recently made a pair of mittens with it, and found it easy to work with, even with smaller needles. The fabric produced was beefy and dense, almost like it was felted, but soft and flexible. A sweater made from this yarn might even be too warm.

              Comments about Noro Nadeshiko:

              I purchased this yarn in 4 different colorways and have so far completed 3 separate projects. The pattern I used was the Arette cape pattern #337 (can be purchased as a download). Nadeshiko was perfectly interchangeable with the recommended yarn and in fact is much more beautiful and interesting. I made one for my sister, and one for each of my two daughters, now one for me. Yarn requirements for this pattern is between 2 - 3 hanks of Nadeshiko. Try it, you won't be sorry. Yarn is so lovely I can accept slight shedding due to angora.

              Service and delivery comments:

              great customer service in answering my phone questions and prompt delivery. I only buy my yarn from Yarn.com.
