      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.

        Love the way the colors blend into one another, yarn i light and warm great for making sweaters, made a sweater using silk garden, not the lite and the sweater was too warm and a bit itchy.

                  I didn't like the texture or the color. It's okay, but I would not have selected it if I saw it in a store.

                  Service and delivery comments:

                  No complaints about delivery. It's just hard to judge the yarns without touching them.

                      The hand and colors are delightful to knit with. It tends to twist slightly, but this just takes a bit of attention as you go. Making a scarf w/silk garden was so satisfying that I'm looking forward to making a vest next.

                            I like the way this product knits. In the ruana I made I used several different stitches and the yarn showed the varigations of the yarn differently. I found it stunning and love the soft folds. Just the right weight for Arizona.
