Noro Kureyon

Noro Kureyon is the original striping yarn. It is incredibly popular year after year and we can see why! Each skein of Noro Kureyon is a multitude of natural colors and no two projects will look exactly alike. This beautiful yarn is just waiting to be knit.  Made in Japan.

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.

I bought this yarn to make the Seraphina shawl. In the end, I bought 9 skeins in two batches, and though the shawl was still smaller than I wanted, I refuse to buy any more. I gave it to a small person. The yarn felt harsh in my hands and was full of bits of grass or hay or something. I had not realized that it was a variable thickness yarn, it varied from a very tight twist about sport yarn size to basically untwisted roving. I didn't care for that but could live with it. But I grew to hate it more with every skein - why? Every skein had at least one knot where a new strand had been tied on, and there was never any attention to the color sequence. After 9 skeins, I STILL don't know what the sequence should be. The result was a lot of puddling, and an overall muddy look to the shawl. One would think in a yarn made popular for the color striping that they would at least try for quality in that feature. I was VERY disappointed, and will not buy Noro yarns again.

Comments about Noro Kureyon:

I have used the Noro yarn on may of my projects.
I love the color ways. When knitted it looks so
beautiful and there is no need to add another yarn.
Just a simple stitch will do the job. However, on the Kuryon that I bought I was a bit disappointed.
Some of the skeins had one too many joints. That is ok by me but, the problem was that color joining was NOT in sequins and when you are making
a project you like to keep the color in a sequins so I had to cut the yarn and start from a fresh skein to continue. Also I notice too many color
joints in one skein?

                I haven't started on the project yet that I bought the yarn for, but I have used this yarn before, and it is nice to use. It is more loosely spun, and I am doing a fairly complex pattern, so I don't know how easy it will be, but others have done the same pattern with the same yarn, so I should be ok.....
