Chirimen Add to My Favorites
Enjoy the wonderful color combos of bright to subtle neutrals from yarn guru Eisaku Noro in his warm-weather gem "Chirimen." Blending cotton with a touch of silk & a smidgen of wool gives "Chirimen" added softness and lightness for spring & summer, and the colors remind us a bit of auto-striping "Silk Garden." Just imagine all the pullovers, tops, boleros, cardigans, bags, shawls & more you can knit & crochet with this lovely DK-weight fiber creation. Sensationally crafted of 60% cotton, 24% silk & 16% wool.

This yarn has beautiful colors and is very soft. The texture varies a bit, from thinner, tightly twisted sections to loosely plied, thick sections. The only downside I found was that it sometimes pulls apart easily while knitting.
