I used Noro Kureyon to make a throw for a birthday gift for my sister. The colors are vibrant and help create a patchwork effect. I love the way knitting with Noro surprises you...you can't really know what it will look like until it's finished and no two items will ever look the same.

This yarn is a disgrace

By Susan

from Dallas, Texas

Pros

    Cons

    • Coarse
    • Full Of Knots

    Best Uses

      Comments about Noro Kureyon:

      This yarn is so full of knots, it is unusable. I am making a shawl as a gift, but I would be too embarrassed to give this to anyone. The shawl is 225 stitches long so imagine how frustrating it is to knit 200 stitches then find a knot and have to rip out the entire row, or to leave it in and have an unstable knot that ruins the piece. Also, the person who thinks it's okay to knot an orange strand to a maroon strand obviously has no respect for the people buying the product. I have spent hours on this shawl but tonight I've decided that enough is enough. The time I have to spend knitting is too precious to waste on this kind of junk

            Best Uses

              Comments about Noro Kureyon:

              I bought this yarn to make the Seraphina shawl. In the end, I bought 9 skeins in two batches, and though the shawl was still smaller than I wanted, I refuse to buy any more. I gave it to a small person. The yarn felt harsh in my hands and was full of bits of grass or hay or something. I had not realized that it was a variable thickness yarn, it varied from a very tight twist about sport yarn size to basically untwisted roving. I didn't care for that but could live with it. But I grew to hate it more with every skein - why? Every skein had at least one knot where a new strand had been tied on, and there was never any attention to the color sequence. After 9 skeins, I STILL don't know what the sequence should be. The result was a lot of puddling, and an overall muddy look to the shawl. One would think in a yarn made popular for the color striping that they would at least try for quality in that feature. I was VERY disappointed, and will not buy Noro yarns again.

              Comments about Noro Kureyon:

              To describe my con: almost every Noro skein has a cut somewhere with a new run knotted in. I wish they wouldn't do that. It does upset the color run, and I don't want a knot in my finished product.

              Beyond that, I love the colors and will always pick Noro over other striping yarns because the colors are so much more vibrant and make beautiful finished products.

                Comments about Noro Kureyon:

                I'm currently knitting an afghan with this yarn, in combination with a solid color yarn by another brand. This Kureyon by Noro is such fun to knit! The colors are very bright, and the color changes are playful and unexpected. Using just the Kureyon by itself for a large project might be too much of a good thing, but in combination with a dark, solid color, smooth yarn it's really stunning. Also, the Noro is a thick-and-thin yarn, so in addition to the bright color changes, you also get textural variations, too. It's really great!

                    This is a great yarn with great colors. Makes beautiful items. My only complaint would be that is not unusual to find a knot in the skein often joining two completely different colors. I love the thick/thin element of this yarn. Mistakes are easily hidden.
