If you are making something to wear around your neck, close to your face, etc, this isn't the yarn for you, go look at the silk garden or taiyo for that. IF you want to make a project you want to felt...it is dreamy. It is a softish yarn, just not soft enough for tender skin areas or someone that has issues with wool in general. The colors are wonderful, the slow dye is stunning, it makes wonderful entrelac projects like purses and bowls and such that are felted, it retains the soft feel of it when felted....this is my go to felting yarn, or a garment not meant to wear next to the bare skin.
I purchased two different skeins of this yarn to knit a scarf for my son. It looks great in beautiful, vivid colors, but it is really quite scratchy so much so that I doubt my son will even wear the scarf. The yarn weight also seems to vary quite a bit with a single strand going from what looks like bulky to something akin to fingering yarn. Personally, I like the look that comes with this kind of variability in thickness but if you are looking for something with a consistent weight this is probably not the yarn for you.
Really cool color gradient--great when you want dramatic color change. I'd give it 5 stars except, like all Kureyon, it's a little scratchy. Also, like a lot of Noro yarn, there will sometimes be a break and Noro will cheat and tie the yarn together.
