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.

    Comments about Noro Taiyo Sock:

    I'm using this to knit a light-weight summer shawl. This is the yarn recommended by the pattern and I'm so glad I ordered it. I love the color variations, the feel as I knit, and the weight. I don't often use sock weight yarn but will definitely use this again.

          Great colors, Noro yarns in my experience, tend to be a little tricky to work with. Don't fight them, let them do their thing, and everyone will be happier!

              This is one of my favorite mill spun yarns for woven summer scarves. It works great as warp with a neutral colored weft.

              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.
