Silk Garden by Noro -now including the Silk Garden Solos

For those of you who know Noro yarns to be "scratchy", you might want to try them again. Over the past 5-6 years Noro has been using more merino in his yarns and perhaps even finer micron mohair in an effort to soften his yarns and overcome that criticism some knitters had of his line. So the new Kureyon, Silk Garden and now the Ito are all much softer than Noro used to be.

And the colors are pleasing. Now that he is offering Silk Garden in solid colors (the "solos") to pair with the original and colorful Silk Garden - or to use on their own - you have lots of lovely jewel tones to complement the lovely colorful line he is known for.

From mosaic cowls to chevron scarves and entrelac hats, Silk Garden and the other Noro yarns are a great way to play with color. And even keeping it simple with the *k1p1* scarf shown top right, really shows off the lovely gradation of colors in this yarn.

Some of the photos - particularly the solid colors - are a bit dark in the small thumbnail, but you can see the darker colors really well if you click on the photo to enlarge it!

Silk Garden is 45% silk, 45% kid mohair and 10% lamb's wool. Knits at 4.5 sts/in on US 7-8. The wristlets shown far right take just 1 skein and the pattern is free with the yarn purchase....think quick knit gift idea!

Price: $11.99/sk 110 yds/sk
