Kureyon is a great yarn to knit with--a super wool for felting as well as regular knitting projects. The long variegations in color in the yarn allow for "self-striping" bands of color. While I love this yarn knitted in projects, I particularly enjoy it after washing-the yarn softens and even felts slightly. There are a number of good free patterns available (including the Booga Bag patterns). This yarn is a joy to work with.

I absolutely adore this yarn. I have made two pairs of wonderful thick wool hiking socks with this yarn, both of which came out looking phenomenal. When knitting socks with this yarn, I recommend using a size US4.

I've found Kureyon to be very scratchy and don't recommend for next-to-the-skin wear, but for felting it's great. It's very fun to work and watch the striping appear, and this type of "Noro striping" is nicer, less defined, than the preprinted sock yarns that autostripe.

I would appreciate help choosing colors for both bags and sweaters. I like deep, rich colors. I was thinking about #159, #52, #88, #129, #147 and #139. Also does anyone know which Noro yarn was used in the Lotorp bag shown in Book #3 by Cornelia Tuttle Hamilton and how many skeins it took. Thanks

I love the colors, but found the yarn very itchy, even after washing. I also got tired of pulling out the bits of hay or grass or whatever that gets spun into it. Very expensive for what you get, although good for shawls because it is very warm.
