    Rainbow softness

      Comments about Shiro:

      Used Shiro to make a boomerang style shawl to drape around my neck and shoulders. The simple stockinette with purl ridges in the pattern really brought out the rainbow of subtle coloring that Noro is known for. Also made a shawl from Silk Garden, so am able to compare the two yarns. Shiro has more wool and less silk than Silk Garden so it's lighter and less drapey, but still beautiful! Silk Garden is wonderful if you want more fluid drapiness in your garment, due to 45% silk content. Shiro does have occasional spots of thicker yarn but only slightly noticeable in pattern I used, and those spots added interesting texture. The only con I must mention is one spot where yarn was three times thicker. I left that one stitch in the scarf, as there was enough color going on around it to distract from it. It's still a beautiful, soft yarn.

        I got this at the tent sale a few weeks ago and never realized how beautiful it would look knit into a slouchy hat. The self striping is exquisite! True joy to knit!

            Comments about Shiro:

            I have not used this yarn yet. However, I would like to comment on its amazing colors, which turned out to be very true to the WEBS swatch image. This yarn feels very soft and itch free. I can hardly wait to start knitting it.
            Prior to my purchasing this yarn, I had to consult with WEBS customer service, and as usual, it was a very pleasant experience resulting in prompt and positive response.
            Thank you WEBS.
