Noro has a Hit in Hitsuji

Great yarn for knitting felted hats. I make felted items for sale in shows and at the Made in Oregon stores, they love these hats.

While both skeins were the same dye lot, one was wildly colorful and beautiful and the other was dead and ugly. Sadly, I cannot use them together as planned and I'm very disappointed.

I realize Noro varies from skein to skein even in the same dye lot, but I wish the person selecting them had matched them better.

    Comments about Noro Hitsuji:

    this yarn is super cool; it knits up in three or four movies if you are snowed in and wish to binge one Netflics or travels well on a plane. I love this brand and made a number of long full infinity scarves this winter. The pattern turns heads and I receive compliemtns from the more subdude tones to the more firey ones. A great surprise at every stich! go for it.

          I bought three balls of this for a scarf for myself, and I've hardly taken it off since I knit it! The colors are spectacular, and the weight is wonderful--it makes up into a gloriously beautiful, squishy, snuggly fabric.

              This is a nice yarn and knits up very quickly. The only irritant is that is twists up a bit, but is not a deciding factor against it. It is very soft and the colors are gorgeous.

                  I am using this yarn to knit a felted bag. It is deliciously soft and bulky and easy to knit using size 10 needles. I'm using a mix of Fall colors which are lovely. I haven't felted it, but it's almost completed and is looking great!

                    Have bought this yarn frequently and am never disappointed. Takes very little to felt it and have made brimmed hats,purses and various electronic product covers for sales. Love the combinations of colors. Twisting is quite manageable.
