A fabulous yarn for a simple knit sweater. Just use stockinette for your main stitch as patterns would not show. The coloration and dying are outstandingly beautiful. After you wear it several times the angora blooms and creates a fabric in which the stitches almost disappear. The end result is a show stopper garment.

I ordered the beautiful lavender color of this yarn and when it arrived I was so disappointed. It turns out that the color pictured is not the real color. There is a small amount of lavender tones in this yarn but it is mostly PINK. The pink does not show up in the website photo. If it did I would not have ordered this color. It is unfortunate that ordering yarn online often results in colors that are different than shown.

    Comments about Noro Nadeshiko:

    I usually love the way Noro yarns look, but feel that they're difficult to use well or hard to work colors together, etc. I used this to knit the hoodie from the cover of the Webs catalog and am thrilled with the results. Soft, warm, fuzzy and no extreme color changes that make me pull the ball apart to find the matching color like usual with Noro yarns. I will probably buy another few skeins to make myself a hoodie as well.

      Comments about Noro Nadeshiko:

      I set out to knit a hooded cardigan according to NORO Magazine Fall 2012 #8. However I added 14cm to the length and knitted it firmly in one piece. The fabric came out steady and the stripes are very pretty. The collors hamonice nicely and are softened by the angora. Due to the firm knitting, the sice was smaller than planned, but I added the missing cm on the collar and the cardigan came out as a very warm, beautiful and light duffle coat, perfect for swedish winter conditions. If I was to do it again I'd pick a larger sice and add two cm to the hood. I will for sure use this yarn again. It will be difficult to find a better yarn.

      Service and delivery comments:

      The delivery was fast. I made an additional order and customer service had the two orders processed and delivered togeather after I requested it.

        It's Noro - with silk and angora. What's not to love about this yarn? The colorways are very pretty. The yarn develops a great bloom.

            I love this yarn. It has a great feel and is beautiful when knitted. Unfortunately, probably too warm for Texas. I had the sweater for me but looked horrible on me. Looked stunning on my mom so now I don't have to make her anything for Christmas.

            Can't wait to try more NORO yarns.

              Comments about Noro Nadeshiko:

              I love the colours of this yarn. The chunky weight means that it knits up fast. The angora in it does shed, a lot, and makes for a soft stitch so intricate patterns would not be highlighted. I did have the yarn fall apart in one spot and had to unpick a few stitches to join it.
