            Comments about Noro Koromo:

            Love this yarn. Gorgeous colours,doesn't split when knitting and very few joins in a ball of yarn make this wonderful to use for the varied style beanies I knit. It's also fabulous for infinity scarves done on a larger needle and drapes beautifully.

              Comments about Noro Koromo:

              I am using this yarn to make a light-weight throw. The variegation works into patterns that look "planned" but are not. I especially like the way the variegation is incorporated both as a dyed main strand but also in flecks of yarn that are spun into the main strand.

                          I knitted a top that was worked sideways.
                          The result is a beautifully striped top which is completely individual.
                          Noro Koromo allows me to produce one-off garments just by knitting.

                          I'm making the Batwing Colorblock Topper from the latest Noro magazine. So far so good -- the texture has an "interesting" feel to it, like a soft burlap if that makes any sense. Not much elasticity to it, definitely alot of cotton. Although, I find that with the other Noro yarns, they soften up nicely after a Eucalan bath. As always, Noro yarn colors are exquisite!
