I used Noro Kureyon to make a throw for a birthday gift for my sister. The colors are vibrant and help create a patchwork effect. I love the way knitting with Noro surprises you...you can't really know what it will look like until it's finished and no two items will ever look the same.

    Comments about Noro Kureyon:

    Kureyon has been one of the few favorites I have knitted with for decades. The finished items are beautiful and (if well cared for) last for a very long time making this yarn perfect for "classic" designs. One of the secrets of Kureyon is that it is easy to break the yarn and remove any of the well-edited colors that just don't work for you. Knitting with more than one colorway or skewing different colors from the same colorway is great fun and can result in gorgeous fabrics and designs. If you are new to Kureyon, try 1 - 2 balls for a cap, beret or small neck scarf to see how lovely and soft the wool is and how beautiful the colors are. The only thing "wrong" with Noro's Kureyon is that sometimes a favorite color is discontinued.

    Service and delivery comments:

    Webs service has been excellent since I first started ordering from them - before online shopping. Customer service is great.

    Comments about Noro Kureyon:

    on sale this is good buy and very warm yarn, so far I've made fingerless gloves with it, but it does make up sort of bulky. My problem with it, is if you pull it to a knot or end off and want to secure etc. it will pull and rip on you. so be careful!

      Comments about Noro Kureyon:

      Kureyon worsted is my go-to choice for mittens and hats. The colors and variety are great. I wish Noro would leave out some of the pinks and fuchsias though, but I just snip them out and rejoin the ball. Price is moderate, too, for so fine a product. Also love WEB's service.

        • Blankets

        Comments about Noro Kureyon:

        I bought this yarn to make the Lizard Ridge blanket and I am not disappointed. It is stunning yarn and is making an equally stunning blanket. I love that it is so easy to do a felted join on this yarn - though a warning to be careful washing in the future! There is huge variation in the thickness of the yarn throughout each skein. This doesn't bother me at all for a blanket. It might for another garment - depending on the style. There have been places in the skein that were so bulky and fuzzy/thick that I have felted them thinner by wetting and rolling between my hands. The yarn is cleaner than I expected. Some bits and pieces of grassy stuff, but not much at all. Not even once a skein. I'd read from others that was a common occurrence, so have been pleasantly surprised. Really, if you like the look of this yarn - you will love it! As I said, it's making a perfect, PERFECT blanket.

          I do love Noro: the colors, the textures, the striping, the feel of the yarn as I'm knitting/weaving/crocheting, and the feel of the garment when I'm wearing it!

            It was not as soft as I expected. I would not recommend it for a scarf that is close to the face, a little too scratchy.

              I find this yarn great for making hats as it tends to be coarse and only 100 yards... great customer service, that is why I am always back for more!
