Noro Haniwa is a slubby, soft silk/wool/nylon blend in muted mixed colors. Haniwa's variegation knits up into a fabric with the appearance of printed patterns and stripes. If you love Noro, you'll love this gorgeously silky worsted weight for all kinds of head-turning garments and accessories. Made in Japan.
I like the feel and fiber content. The striping doesn't knit up as pretty as other Noro yarns such as Kureyon or Silk garden which was disappointing as I bought A LOT for a sweater coat. But, it was on sale and I'm sure I'll still wear it!
I got 2 skeins in color #9 to use for contrasting stripes in a sweater. I did a big swatch to test the color changes and adjust the gauges. Worked great! Then I took the 2nd skein and started the sweater. The yarn broke on several rows. Still kept going because the texture of the yarn hides the weaved-in ends well. But it is very annoying! The other skein had no issues at all! Even after unravelling the swatch and using the yarn a 2nd time. How can this be? I wound both the same way, by hand, no tools, had them around my knees, wound into a loose ball! Glad this Noro yarn was on sale. Good for trying out. This one I probably will not buy again!
Was this a gift?:
Bottom Line No, I would not recommend this to a friend
