Noro Silk Garden

Made a striped slouchy hat with 2 different skeins and it is very pretty when you do this. This is what they do in a lot of the sweater patterns from Noro too.

The Upside: This yarn has some really beautiful colors and is super warm knitted up. The Noro Stripped Scarf I made (Raverly pattern) turned out lovely.

The Downside: Both skeins I used were full of sharp small organic material that needed to be picked out every few yards (I'm not exaggerating). Plus it's very coarse. Most people would probably find it unpleasant against bare skin.

I decided I while I wouldn't recommend this yarn to a friend, I would use it again myself.

    Comments about 8.39 Silk Garden:

    The only thing this yarn has going for it are the lovely colours. However the flaws prevent me from reordering this or any other yarn from Noro. Simply too scratchy, it twists up on itself which is extremely bothersome and the variation in yarn widths within the same ball is crazy making. Not a fan

      Noro has a reputation for thick/thin texture and sometimes has knots in the ball. But the colors are worth the challenges.

      Comments about 8.39 Silk Garden:

      Noro yarns are the most luxurious silk/wool blend I've encountered. With spectacular self-striping colour combinations, I'm hard-pressed to think of a project they wouldn't be perfect for.

            Comments about 8.39 Silk Garden:

            Noro Silk Garden is so unique that it's hard to find words to compare this yarn to any other. Mr. Noro has been making color shift yarns for over 25 years, and his handling of colors is unlike any other. The silk in this yarn grabs the color in the dyebath with an intensity and lumosity that is unmatched. I love working with Silk Garden and wish I had more time and money - it's definitely a stash builder, too!

            This yarn is simply beautiful, it has a gorgeous sheen. As a beginner, I had no difficulty with it at all. I used it for a scarf. It, like many of the yarns I have tried, works better with bamboo needles, which accommodate the slipperiness of the yarn.
