Overall Shiraito Rating: 4.5 out of 5 (4.5 based on 8 reviews)

Wingspan shawl 4 out of 5 (4 out of 5)
I got the yarn while on vacation and was assured that the yardage I purchased would make a wingspan shawl. I did not have enough. JBW is one of my favorite places to browse or visit when I in Reno, so I got some more of the yarn. Same dye lot, too! My shawl is not completed yet, but it will certainly be warm and toasty during this coming winter. The slight downside may be the shedding due to the fiber content. I hope this will not be a problem, once I have washed and blocked the shawl.

Super Soft 4 out of 5 (4 out of 5)
Quite pricey but a wonderful yarn. It's a bit delicate and broke on me twice but still love it!

Shiraito is wonderful 4 out of 5 (4 out of 5)
I'm finding it smooth to knit with, pleasant in the hand, and sturdy. I love Noro yarns to watch the colors change under my fingers. I am making a scarf - this would be a soft and warm yarn for a sweater, but living on the Gulf Coast, I wouldn't wear it very often, so scarf it is!
