    I am on my third project using the taiyo sock yarn and I am pleased with the yarn's performance. The texture of the FO is soft and it drapes really well. As with all Noro yarns, it has imperfections, but I love the quirkiness. The colors are amazing and it knits up fairly quickly as you watch the colors change. I would recommend adding reinforcing thread at heels if you are doing socks that will get a lot of use

    overall, i love noro yarns - mostly for the color ways. they are beautiful and blend so nicely. however, i am not happy with this sock yarn, as i ran into slubs and knots. the slubs can be lived with and surprisingly look kind of cute but i find knots unacceptable. i expected more from this yarn. i have made socks out of cheaper yarns and didn't experience any knots, so i was expecting at least the same from this more expensive, higher end yarn.

        Comments about Noro Taiyo Sock:

        This was the most difficult yarn to crochet I have ever used. It kinked up immediately and constantly. I tried (1) working directly from the ball and (2) winding it into a cake using a yarn winder, but neither was even remotely satisfactory. Quality control is very suspect. The yarn goes from thread thin to bulky, undyed roving in a matter of yards. Even though I love the colors, I won't buy this again.

        This yarn is spun for use for both knitters and crocheters. I have an extra skein that I will need to find a specific design.

        Service was excellent. Product arrived in good condition.

          Comments about Noro Taiyo Sock:

          One of my first projects was a scarf knit from Noro Garden Silk Light-it was like knitting from a rainbow-it still feels like that seven years later. And I still wear that scarf. The handspun texture also is a big draw for me-it makes every project look and feel unique. The Windward scarf made from Taiyo is warm, light and the unusual construction is a great showcase for the color play of this yarn.

              The yarn is somewhat inconsistent...from very thin to kinda worsted...but that's what to expect with Noro.

              Comments about Noro Taiyo Sock:

              I made a short sleeve sweater and 2 scarves from Taiyo sock. It feels stiff as you begin to knit/crochet with it, but really softens up as you work with it. The colors are great, as is almost all Noro, and living in Florida, I really like the high cotton content in this yarn! The only problem I have is that it tends tangle and twist on itself. I've tried pulling from the middle of the skein, working from the outside of the skein, and rewinding it, and it it still twists!
