    I really love this yarn. I ordered Silk Garden Lite in colors 2012 and 2038, both are absolutely gorgeous and different as night and day. I started knitting with 2012 and it is wonderful to work with, soft with great drape.

    Three of the four balls I purchased had knots int the yarn. I was able to hide them in the linen stitch scarf I was making but find it ridiculous that Noro would sell such poor quality. Loved the intense colors but the colors didn't match description provided. Overall, have purchased better for less.

      Lovely for design...make module change coincide with color change! Luxurious carried with a silk haze type of yarn.

      Comments about Noro Silk Garden Lite:

      Just finishing a hat with this yarn so can't address it long term attributes. But it is soft, knits well. I like the colors, it is a good "Noro" yarn.

      Service and delivery comments:

      delivery was fairly prompt. When I order something on-line, I usually want it "right now" - that is just not possible. But orders from here have always been accurate and arrive in short order. I think prices and selection are very good.

        Comments about Noro Silk Garden Lite:

        Good price, beautiful colors, nice blend.
        It is a single strand (not plyed) and it easily untwists and then breaks too frequently.
        I would only recommend this to a friend after explaining its "weakness".

            Love the way the colors blend into one another, yarn i light and warm great for making sweaters, made a sweater using silk garden, not the lite and the sweater was too warm and a bit itchy.
