    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.

    Three of the four balls I purchased had knots int the yarn. I was able to hide them in the linen stitch scarf I was making but find it ridiculous that Noro would sell such poor quality. Loved the intense colors but the colors didn't match description provided. Overall, have purchased better for less.

      Bought this yarn to make a seed stitch wrap. The colors are amazing! Stitch definition is so wonderful. It looks woven! Would definitely order this yarn again.

        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.

          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.

            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".
