      Comments about Noro Shirakaba:

      As with all Noro yarns I have used, this one hits the mark. Beautiful colors blend into a gorgeous pattern. Nice texture, great and easy to work with, comfortable to wear. Cannot say enough good things about Noro. Hands down my favorite brand of yarn.

        Comments about Noro Shirakaba:

        I knitted a tunic to pop over cotton t-shirts for the cooler weather. Washed very nicely, silk content is lovely, smooths out the small percentage of (itchy) wool. I really like the coloring so I bought a copper red lot for a long cardigan. Best knit seamless as the yarn breaks if you try to seam with it, no matter how gentle you are. Hard to find silk/cotton content at such a great price- on sale of course!
