I really love this yarn. I ordered Silk Garden Lite in colors 2012 and 2038, both are absolutely gorgeous and different as night and day. I started knitting with 2012 and it is wonderful to work with, soft with great drape.

I used this yarn for a crochet project which I knew would not be worn next to the skin, as it's not very soft. The most annoying thing to me is that it contains all kinds of little bits and pieces of loose fibers and threads. I was constantly having to stop and pull them out with tweezers, which really slowed down my crocheting and probably doubled the length of time it took me to crochet the vest. It is also very uneven in thickness - going from a thin, fingering weight yarn to a worsted or bulky weight yarn in places. The colors are the primary selling point of all the Noro yarns, because otherwise I don't think anyone would buy them for their quality control or wearability.

      Comments about Noro Silk Garden Lite:

      My online order was very easy to select and complete. I was pleased with the selection and number of skeins available. Choice is everything! I would like to see knitted swatches of each color way as just looking at the end or side of skein does not give best representation of how the colours blend into stripes. I have worked with Noro yarns for years and so have gotten into the habit of winding each skein to manage abrupt color changes due to knotted ends. As I wind I feel for knots and will cut the strand, remove the knit and start a new cake. This gives me better control of color transitions in my garment. I knit jackets and large sweaters so overall look of the garment is what makes them wearable art.

        • Hats

        Comments about Noro Silk Garden Lite:

        Just finishing a hat with this yarn so can't address it long term attributes. But it is soft, knits well. I like the colors, it is a good "Noro" yarn.

        Service and delivery comments:

        delivery was fairly prompt. When I order something on-line, I usually want it "right now" - that is just not possible. But orders from here have always been accurate and arrive in short order. I think prices and selection are very good.

          Comments about Noro Silk Garden Lite:

          Good price, beautiful colors, nice blend.
          It is a single strand (not plyed) and it easily untwists and then breaks too frequently.
          I would only recommend this to a friend after explaining its "weakness".
