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.

      Colors are Beautiful

      By Larkellen

      from Ridgefield, CT

      Verified Buyer

      Comments about Noro Silk Garden:

      Silk Garden by Noro is a beautiful yarn. The colors are vivid, and the self-striping is fun. I'm using it to knit a vest and am pleased with how it is turning out. The work has a satisfying, resilient texture and it's a pleasure to see how the variety of colors within each skein pattern out. There are two things, however, that I am unhappy about with this yarn. One is that in a few places it is so thin as to be nearly thread-like, and I worry about how those areas will hold up over time. The other problem was that in one of the skeins I was very upset to find a knot tying two pieces of the yarn together where it had been broken. That should never happen in any skein, much less in yarn as high quality as this. I had to cut the knot out and was left with two smaller balls, forcing me to use a new ball of yarn sooner than I should have had to. Finding a knot embedded within a skein is a no-no!

            Comments about Noro Silk Garden:

            I bought this yarn to make a dragon scale/skin scarf. The color is beautiful, and it is a nice weight for a lightweight/fashion scarf. The texture is coarser than I expected, but as I am new to the yarn, it may soften as I work it. It is still a lovely yarn, and if my hypersensitive skin can deal with the texture, I will wear it with pride. If it makes my skin go nuts, my BFF will wear it with pride ;-).

              Made a hat out of 1 skein in #373 color (only 1 yd left). Nice and warm, and gorgeous color (#373). The mohair gives it a nice fuzzy look, without losing the striping effect. One of my new favorite hats.

              Disappointing even for entrelac

                Comments about Noro Silk Garden:

                I have been using this yarn for a self-designed entrelac cardigan, and I am quite disappointed with it. The worse feature is that not all of the colors in this colorway (211) are represented in each skein, making very hard to balance what colors show where in the garment. Some "stand out" colors were found in only half the skeins in the same dye lot. It feels far harsher than many reviewers descriptions led me to believe. And like several other reviews I just read, I found many bits of sharp plant material wound into the yarn. I would think that a pricey yarn would have come from cleaner wool!

                    I used this product in a multi-colored modular sweater so the wide swings in tints were perfect, do not think I would use it otherwise. When I put tension on the yarn to snug up a stitch, it broke, needless to say, I wasn't too happy about that.
