        Super soft yarn with stunning colorways. Looks GREAT in a crocheted garment (glove-lets) but is very fragile, especially when tying off - breaks easily!

        Comments about Noro Shiraito:

        I love the way the colors blend and work together. I would like to knit two strands alternating and make a "painting" out of this yarn. The feel of the yarn was so soothing. I had my knitting bag next to me in a difficult meeting and found that just touching it settled my upset.

        Service and delivery comments:

        prompt and in good condition

        Luxury with Differences

        By 50-Year Knitter

        from San Antonio, TX

        About Me Enthusiast

        Pros

        • Hides Mistakes
        • Soft

        Cons

        • Limited Uses
        • Very Uneven Thickness

        Best Uses

        • Collar
        • Scarves

        Comments about Noro Shiraito:

        I purchased 3 hanks to knit Noro's mobius cowl, making it narrower than the pattern called for. Could never knit to gauge, but that did not matter with this pattern. Had enough left over to make a collar from Vogue Knitting's Sping/Summer 2013 issue. Although this yarn is hand dyed, I did not expect such major color differences (in quantity) among the 3 hanks. E.g., there was lots of green, tan, aqua, and rust but hardly any blue in one hank; the other hanks had lots of all the colors.

        Luscious yarn !

        By Lizablue

        from Springfield, VA

        About Me Enthusiast

        Verified Buyer

        Pros

        • Gorgeous colors
        • Nice Texture
        • Soft

        Cons

        • Almost too delicate

        Best Uses

        • Gloves
        • Sweaters

        Comments about Noro Shiraito:

        Had several false starts as it was difficult to choose between creating a fabric with crochet or knitting, then stockinette or garter stitch. Settled on a garter stitch for the shrug as it gave strength to this somewhat delicate, easily broken yarn. The fingerless gloves worked up well in crochet. Either way the colors glow!
