      I knit a sweater from this and it turned out wonderful. It is much heavier than you think at first because it is so soft. This causes a bit of "growing" in garments. Keep this in mind for underarms and length. I would love to have a closet full of sweaters out of this.

      I love Noro yarn and the beautiful colors.

      I purchased 3 skeins for a project and every skein had hand tied knots connecting new yarn. Noro yarn is known for shading why would Noro, knowingly piece yarn with a knot, without considering the colorway shading - causing abrupt shading switches in the skein? I understand finding knots in skeins of yarn occasionally (don't like it) but every skein purchased?

      Also because of the combination of fibers spin in this yarn when the yarn switches over to mostly cotton, the yarn is at it's weakest point and easily shreds.

      Noro still has the most beautiful colorways available but when selecting this yarn realize it has to be treated very carefully and does not have the strength of a Noro 100% wool yarn.

          Very quick knit. I'll definitely use it again. The only down side is that it can, at certain points, shred. Keep long tails for weaving in.

                  •This Taiyo yarn is soft and knits up fast. Each sweater, scarf or hat that I have made has provoked numerous compliments. I know it is because of the colors.

                      The yarn is soft, holds its shape well and of course has the fantastic Noro colorway. It was used in a queen annes' lace pattern for a scarf and each color made one to one and a half pattern repeat resulting in a fantastic scarf. Knit with bamboo needles and had no problem with splitting, unraveling, reknitting. One skein was enough to complete a single scarf in this pattern. I found no knots in the skein.

                      This is a beautiful yarn which self-stripes gradually into many different colors. The texture is soft and the fiber variation as the yarn changes density (more cotton and less nylon in some places) is gorgeous.

                      HOWEVER - In the eight skeins I have purchased, (in colors #01 and #21) HALF of the skeins had abrupt color changes due to the knotting of the yarn in the middle of the skein by the manufacturer with no regard to the color pattern. If the abrupt color change will be noticeable on the item you are knitting, you may want to purchase extra skeins so you can unravel and match up other skeins to maintain your color pattern. Not exactly ideal, but this yarn is really worth it.

                      If you are knitting anything with tension or you want some stretch, this yarn may not be suitable because the cotton parts of the fiber (not supported by the nylon or wool) will break with tension.
