        Comments about Noro Kochoran:

        Kochran is wonderful to knit with.
        I knitted a 9inch by 82 inch scarf. The irregularity in the caliber of the yarn together with the fluctuation of colors makes many stitches standout in a very subtle way. The angora adds a soft feel and look.

        I knit a short zippered sweater. The yarn is so nice and soft. The color gradation is wonderful. This yarn does shed while knitting it. This is only a problem with dark clothing

            Comments about Noro Kochoran:

            The ultimate knitting fun comes with this yarn. It knits easily and provides that exclusive Noro experience of seeing colors revealed in unexpected order. The angora gives a wonderful blur to the surface and mutes the colors, along with making this perfect next to the skin. I have to stop for "stroking" breaks when I knit with it.

              I love all the Noro yarns, especially this one. I made a pair of mittens with Kochoran, as soon as they were done, I had to make more cuz everybody wanted them. Next will be a sweater....so soft and cuddly next to your skin.

              Comments about Noro Kochoran:

              This seems to always knit at a chunky gauge for me. Has a nice denseness and feels soft against skin.
