Love this yarn - making a cowl out of it to go with my black winter coat. A nice pop of color. Noro is Noro - so if you've knit with it before, you know what you are getting: all the beautiful colors, the lovely texture and slight roughness of Noro.

 Imperial Yarn 3 of 6

 Product reviewed: Imperial Yarn - Tracie
This yarn is from an old and wonderful family-run sheep farm in Oregon, which gets alot of stars in my book - just the sheer guts of the survival is something. It was also used as yarn for the Olympic outfits - and they still had some for sale for the rest of us knitters. - also very thoughtful. I love the richness of the color, and it is knitting up well I'm making a cable sweater for my husband - it looks like it will be durable, which is important. The feel in hand is a little rough, and occasionally you will run bits plant fiber, neither of which bother me. The yarn will most likely soften with washing, but the quibble I had with the yarn was that every so often, more often than I would like, there was a join in just one of the strands it is a 2-ply - it was a weak, fuzzy spot that couldn't be knit over and I'd have to stop, cut, and tie meaning that later I will have to weave it in. It seems that something was off in the processing - I've never run across so many tied strands in one skein. This could be an anomaly. I haven't finished the sweater yet, so maybe it was a fluke.

Haven't finished the sweater yet, but I am pleasantly surprised by the feeling and texture of the yarn as it knits up. Originally a little put off by the rough feel of the yarn itself - it's a bit like twine - but I am enjoying knitting with this. The yarn does not have any springiness, but the fabric it makes is cushiony and has a wonderful drape and sheen. I absolutely love this color - bohemian waxwing, perfect for a fall knit. I was also worried about the yarn having alot of halo, which it does not. It may fuzz out over time, so I'll know more after a few months of wearing the sweater.
