Silk Garden, as ever 4 out of 5 (4 out of 5)
Although I always find myself wishing that Silk Garden were a bit softer, it's hard to beat the sheer intensity of color that you get with it. And it does of course, soften a bit with careful blocking I'm fond of Eucalan, but there are other washing products. What I appreciate the most, though, is the assistance I get from the wonderful and VERY patient! folks at JBW when purchasing Silk Garden. I know they do usually photograph the actual product they have, but it's still so nice to be able to call up and just say something like, Is there really a good amount of pink in that color combination? Because they will literally go and put their hands on the yarn and check it out for you. Usually, they'll pick my yarn and send it right on the spot--which means that there's an attention to detail that you just can't find with some really big online places. So JBW's service gets 5 stars, as always, and Silk Garden is as beautiful but typically woolly-feeling, of course as ever.

I used this yarn for a bottom up basic shell. It is great to work with. I love using Noro because of the great colors.

Used this before 4 out of 5 (4 out of 5)
I will use the yarn to make the bubble bag which calls for Silk Garden and another 100% wool yarn. I have to pick just the right color wool to use with the color Silk Garden I selected.
