    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.

    Beautiful but Frustrating

    By D. Camille

    from Stamford, CT

    About Me Artist, Collector, Enthusiast

    Pros

    • Good Weight
    • Knits Quickly
    • Nice Texture

    Cons

    • Breaks Often Where Thin
    • Knotted
    • Knotted skeins

    Best Uses

    • Sweaters

    Comments about Noro Taiyo:

    This is a beautiful but frustrating yarn. It is not advertised as a thick & thin yarn but that is what I got. I've had to cut away sections in one skein because it was too thin and match up the color with another skein resulting in a lot of wasted yarn.

    I had to go out and buy more yarn to be sure I would have enough to finish the sweater. The sweater turned out beautiful but not sure I would buy this yarn again. I love Noro yarns so luckily I have a lot of other choices.

    I would recommend with caution.

        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.

                •I have tried other yarns, but my heart belongs to Noro. The colors are exquisite and are dyed in beautiful progression. It is fun to watch the transformation as you knit.
                •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.
