Made a striped slouchy hat with 2 different skeins and it is very pretty when you do this. This is what they do in a lot of the sweater patterns from Noro too.

The Upside: This yarn has some really beautiful colors and is super warm knitted up. The Noro Stripped Scarf I made (Raverly pattern) turned out lovely.

The Downside: Both skeins I used were full of sharp small organic material that needed to be picked out every few yards (I'm not exaggerating). Plus it's very coarse. Most people would probably find it unpleasant against bare skin.

I decided I while I wouldn't recommend this yarn to a friend, I would use it again myself.

Comments about Noro Silk Garden:

I bought this for my sister as a gift and gave her 16 different colorways. When the box arrived, I just wanted to play! I have worked with this yarn only once, but loved the way it worked up with a soft mush of interesting colors. I plan to use it more in the future, and my sister is going to use her gift to create a one-of-a-kind throw for her home. My only tiny complaint is that it has a slight tendency to twist up while working and I think it has to do with the thin/thick quality of the yarn. Still, it's marvelous stuff!

    I've made shawls years ago from Silk garden and they've worn very well and I still love them. This time I'm making a vest. Silk Garden is softer than many Noro harms and the colors are beautiful.

      Silk Garden on the loom

        Best Uses

        • Scarves

        Comments about Noro Silk Garden:

        I use this yarn as both warp and weft for long, deliciously wooly twill scarves. The yarn isn't really strong enough for warp but when an end breaks, it is easy to repair. I like the effect of using the same variegated yarn as both warp and weft for surprising color effects. I can only buy on sale as I can't use every inch of yarn using a floor loom.

          I am knitting a cardigan using a ribbed & lace stitch, and it is looking gorgeous! The colors are subtle but perfect (ah, Noro!)
          My only complaint is the occasional know that tends to throw off my carefully planned color changes...but it does make things more interesting!

              Comments about Noro Silk Garden:

              I have been using Silk Garden for several years. I love watching the color changes as the project progresses. You don't have to use a lot of fussy stitches to end up with a beautiful project; the colors do that for you. Sometimes I encounter knots, but this yarn can easily be spliced so it's not really a big problem.

                  The weight of the yard was sock, but it worked very nice for a cape. Not too heavy.
