I made a narrow scarf from this in ribbing and really enjoyed working with it and the self-striping element. I wonder how it would work in a bigger project where you didn't want the striping to be so regular?

I've made both a top and a stole using this yarn, and both turned out lovely. The yarn is even softer after a wash. Plus the self-striping is so cool! Highly recommend.

I found this yarn very over priced. I found atleast 1 knot in each ball, which i think is just not okay for something as expensive as the silk garden is. In some places the yarn thickness could be irregular. I think it's very over priced.

This is a great yarn that can be used for everything (scarves, sweaters, hats, you name it). Looks great as the "light color" in a fair isle with a less expensive yarn to help lower the overall price. It also felts but takes many washings so don't pair with a fast felting yarn like Cascade or they won't finish together. It is true that there are knots. For some reason Noro connects pieces together half way through the skein on many of their yarns. It must be something in their manufacturing flow. But if you untie the yarn and separate the strands (fray them a little on both ends) you can roll them between your hands with a little water and basically felt them together. I have never regretted the extra cost of Silk Garden

Beautiful colorways and much softer than Kureyon. All the skeins I've dealt with have hay or something spun into it (does Noro not CARD their WOOL properly????). Many skeins have knots in the middle or loose ends. Sheds a bunch while knitting...a bit pricey for all the hassle, but the final product is lovely.
