Noro Takeuma

Noro Takeuma is a long-striping light worsted to DK weight in gorgeous muted tones. The wool/silk blend in Takeuma gives it that homespun yet sophisticated Noro feel, with some shine in the single ply twist. Takeuma would look great in lighter garments and accessories for transitional weather. Made in Japan.

          • Yoke Of Top Down Sweater

          Comments about Noro Takeuma:

          I have long wanted to make a noro cardigan but it's usually quite pricey. I bought one colour way to use in to too yoke only in a top down cardigan, and enough of another colour way to make a whole sweater! It gas knit up beautifully and looks really spectacular. Get it while it's cheap! Takeuma us discontinued.

                    Nice one, though more subtle in color than most noro yarns - more browns, grey, neutral sections, which is good for certain projects.

                          Comments about Noro Takeuma:

                          I've knit a cardigan sweater and a scarf with this yarn. While it is a self-striping yarn, I used two colorways and knit a manually striped scarf that turned out unbelievably lovely. The yarn is soft to the touch and makes up into beautiful sweaters and scarves. It would make any knit item beautiful.

                          Since it is a "stretchy" yarn, knit items have to be blocked before being worn.
