Kureyon by Noro -

 

Great fun to knit, garments made in Kureyon take on a new look with every row. From simple but interesting stripes in a felted bag or basic sweater pattern to more intricate patterns, this yarn looks great and felts well. Any pattern that uses Kureyon can also work with Silk Garden, also by Noro, so for a more sophisticated or subdued palette of color options, be sure to check Silk Garden out too.
Both of these yarns knits at 4.5-5 sts/in on US 7-8. I've woven it, knit it and felted it. Available in a great range of interesting colors....you can't go wrong!

There are several great hardcover books available ...Knit Noro, Knit Noro Accessories, Noro Crochet and also a terrific magazine available at the store.

The latest book is the 30 Year Anniversary book - photos of some of the projects can be seen below there are sweaters and shawls of course, but I chose to highlight some hats, pillows and fun afghan and an interesting stitch that is featured in one of the sweaters!.

Regularly: $8.95

Noro was never known for being soft - so if it is merino or alpaca soft that you seek, this is probably not the yarn you want. HOWEVER - Mr. Noro, in response to the critics that the yarn was not soft enough, has increased the percentage of merino in the yarn over the years! So it is a lot softer than those who haven't tried it in the last 4-6 years think!! So fibe it a go and decide for yourself. I always find it softer after I have blocked - even before the extra fine wool was added.
