I am wearing the lace-front, short-sleeved sweater I just finished and it is SOOO comfortable, even as the weather heats up. Can't wait to wear it "out" so I can show it off...it's my first lace pattern so I was very pleased that I was able to rip back to where I started out wrong but the yarn was still fine with "re-knitting." I don't think I'd use if for socks, tho...I think it might mat too much, but, haven't tried it. I was also pleased that the whole project only "ate up" 2 1/2 skeins! I've enough left for another project, I think. Love this yarn! Couldn't find any negatives to post.

This was the most difficult yarn to crochet I have ever used. It kinked up immediately and constantly. I tried (1) working directly from the ball and (2) winding it into a cake using a yarn winder, but neither was even remotely satisfactory. Quality control is very suspect. The yarn goes from thread thin to bulky, undyed roving in a matter of yards. Even though I love the colors, I won't buy this again.

I am crocheting a cap sleeve summer sweater. Colors are wonderful. Yard does twist so I do thread it through a hole in a bag, could use a bowl. I love watching the colors unfold as I go.

    Comments about Noro Taiyo Sock:

    I love the colorways and how the finish items turns out. The yarn feels a little stringy but after knitting or crocheting item it has a wonderful feel and texture...It is worth making a scarf or other items even though the strand twists. I can't recommend it to all due to this fact.

    Comments about Noro Taiyo Sock:

    Great Noro colors. Always an adventure to knit with Noro- always some bit of unexpected color. Yarn did twist a bit but was still very easy to work with. I knitted a lace scarf and it blocked out beautifully and became very soft. Label says dry clean but yarn did hand wash just fine. I was very happy with the results of this yarn in my project and will use it again - may not the best for long wearing socks but makes beautiful accessories.

    I use this yarn for Entrelac pieces. The color ways work up beautifully into the individual blocks. It would also work well in modular knitting.

      Cons

      • Not Easy To Wash
      • Twists Up

      Comments about Noro Taiyo Sock:

      This yarn comes in beautiful colors. I DO NOT recommend using it for socks, despite the title of the yarn. The texture is coarse and unique, though the yarn is overall soft, and the gauge is uneven, so it's best to use this for items where gauge is not very important such as scarves and cowls. I knit a scarf with it using the Indian Cross Stitch for my mother and we were both very happy with it.

      I made shawls using a Noro crochet pattern. The color schemes are just beautiful! The one downside is that it twists terribly. I will definitely use this yarn again!

        I ordered it a year ago and the colors were exactly as described and I made a lovely top for a grankid's B-day. it was stolen from the mail so this year I ordered it again, same color, and what I received was nothing like it. Colors were darker and muddier, not good for a kid at all. So order and hope for the best.
