            I love to knit scarves and felted purses with Noro yarns. I get so many complements when I wear them. No negatives. I have never been disappointed. Colors are just as they are on the website.

                  This will make a lovely scarf but can't think what else it would be good for...

                  Comments about Noro Haniwa:

                  As with all noro products the quality and the variance in colors often sell the product, this yarn is no exception

                  I love working with this yarn. It does however break, and it is weird that only some hawks break and not others. I still would buy and use again despite this issue

                  Soft, meaty yarn, easy to knit

                  By Nanette

                  from Wisconsin

                  Pros

                  • Easy to knit
                  • Soft But Hefty Weight

                  Cons

                  • Color Is Duller Than Pic
                  • Striping Not Great

                  Best Uses

                  • Hats
                  • Scarf
                  • Sweater

                  Comments about Noro Haniwa:

                  I like the feel and fiber content. The striping doesn't knit up as pretty as other Noro yarns such as Kureyon or Silk garden which was disappointing as I bought A LOT for a sweater coat. But, it was on sale and I'm sure I'll still wear it!

                  Comments about Noro Haniwa:

                  I got 2 skeins in color #9 to use for contrasting stripes in a sweater. I did a big swatch to test the color changes and adjust the gauges. Worked great!
                  Then I took the 2nd skein and started the sweater. The yarn broke on several rows. Still kept going because the texture of the yarn hides the weaved-in ends well. But it is very annoying! The other skein had no issues at all! Even after unravelling the swatch and using the yarn a 2nd time. How can this be? I wound both the same way, by hand, no tools, had them around my knees, wound into a loose ball!
                  Glad this Noro yarn was on sale. Good for trying out. This one I probably will not buy again!
