Used Shiro to make a boomerang style shawl to drape around my neck and shoulders. The simple stockinette with purl ridges in the pattern really brought out the rainbow of subtle coloring that Noro is known for. Also made a shawl from Silk Garden, so am able to compare the two yarns. Shiro has more wool and less silk than Silk Garden so it's lighter and less drapey, but still beautiful! Silk Garden is wonderful if you want more fluid drapiness in your garment, due to 45% silk content. Shiro does have occasional spots of thicker yarn but only slightly noticeable in pattern I used, and those spots added interesting texture. The only con I must mention is one spot where yarn was three times thicker. I left that one stitch in the scarf, as there was enough color going on around it to distract from it. It's still a beautiful, soft yarn.

Am knitting a sweater with this yarn. It's beautiful; however, it's not as soft as I was expecting for a yarn with 30% cashmere and 30% silk. Too expensive for the level of scratchiness.

    Comments about true Shiro:

    I´m a little disappointed with this yarn. I was curious about the color and also about the content. The label says it has 40% wool, 30% cashmere and 30% silk. With such a composition anyone would expect a super soft yarn. Well, it is not. Actually it is very coarse and I bought a skein to knit a cowl! :( My neck is already suffering from the idea of being touched by it.

        Comments about true Shiro:

        Nothing compares to Noro's ability to color shift so beautifully. It has great drape and extreme softness. This yarn takes longer to knit because it twists terribly. I untwist every 25 minutes or so. There is always a caveat with Noro, but it is without a doubt, always worth it!
