Grab It While You Can 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
I just adore this yarn - its thicks and thins, like homespun, and even the way it occasionally misbehaves and breaks, or comes with knots. It's easy to piece together seamlessly anyway. It self-stripes, but not like soldiers on parade. The downside of any Noro yarn is that it disappears. The company discontinues colorways with depressing regularity. I made myself leg warmers, using No. 149 and my friend saw them and said Ooh, I want some! But, guess what? It's almost gone everywhere and I didn't have enough left over to make her a pair. I found No. 149 here at Jimmy Bean's and bought more. There are only 8 left. Now, maybe they'll order more or maybe it will be discontinued. So, my advice is: If you love this or any other Noro yarn, buy enough for your project, then double it. I have become somewhat of a Noro hoarder for this reason. But I have some beautiful yarns, gone from planet earth except at my house.

Order More Than You Think You'll Need! 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
Wonderful yarn, like homespun. Self striping, but not with military precision. For a beginning knitter, like me, the yarn does all the work, making a simple scarf, for example, look more impressive than it really is. However, as I have learned, to my chagrin, Noro discontinues colorways with depressing regularity. Here one day, gone the next. If you find one that you love, order double, because at some point in the future, it will completely disappear.

Wonderful, Flexible Yarn 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
A bit like homespun, with lengths as thin as dental floss and others almost unspun and very thick. Be careful not to tug too hard on these, because they tend to break under pressure. The real joy of all Noro yarns is the color combinations that gradually flow from one to another. I am a beginning knitter and have made many Noro scarves using the knit stitch only. People have stopped me in the street to ask about the yarn. I just learned to purl and am now making leggings using the rib stitch. Gorgeous! I think I'm ready to make a hat. But the real fun of Kureyon as with all the multi-color Noro yarns is that many of them share colors - pink, green or whatever. So you can combine different Kureyon yarns and create something uniquely personal, like your own coat of many colors. I think of it as splicing and dicing. Such fun!

Unusual yarn. 4 out of 5 stars (4 out of 5)
Knitted a beanie and found the yarn easy to knit with, varying thicknesses but knitted up well and quickly. First time I've used Noro.

Japanese wool 5 out of 5 stars (5 out of 5)
Firts time using this. Not so soft but great colors. I'll sure try other wools from Noro.
