Noro has lovely colorways. It will soften after you soak it.

For needles, it depends on what you're making. You may want to knit some swatches. Try U.S. Size 8 and U.S. Size 9 first.

That made me laugh out loud! I do like Noro a lot but it definitely has its challenges.

I was given some older Noro yarn. 75%wool/25% silk. It looks larger than worsted. Label says 100 gr 13 or J7 (Japanese) and X 6.0 or 7.0 at top ???/iro. Any idea needles needed to work up? or should I just figure it out?

I love working with Nuro and made a scarf. I always get compliments. I like the colors of Nuro. It depends on how much 'some yarn' is. I would go for a scarf or even just a neck covering if you don't have a lot of yarn.

I like Noro yarn. I made scarfs with it and both were beautiful. I sold both of them quickly

I love the look of Noro yarns, even the feel of them after washing. Though the challenges of Noro yarns have landed them on my "do not buy" list.

Knots are one problem, though I usually don't find knots all that troublesome. Pieces of debris, spun into the yarn, which I assume are straw, are annoying and I've found that sometimes it breaks very easily. Anytime I have found a knot, the join results in color change that doesn't match the sequence. This isn't a problem when knitting things like scarves but when knitting a garment, it results in quite a bit of wasted yarn.

I'm a Noro fan. In fact, I'm making Christmas stockings with Noro Kureyon right now. Those yarns keep me interested...and every item is so unique. JMO!

Ha ha ha! So agree. Just don't get the love affair with Noro. Good to know I'm not alone &#128521;

I made a pair of fingerless gloves using one ball of Noro Kureyon yarn. The pair didn't anything like each other. I'm thinking about buying another ball and seeing if two more gloves might match each one of the first set. Am I crazy?

Yes, seriously crazy!!

I was always a non-noro knitter. I couldn't resist a deal on some kureyon and am making the striped scarf by Jared Flood. I'm in love.p with the color changes. When I finish I'm going to soak and believe it will soften. The colors are awesome!

The Noro colors are second to none, that I will agree and after washing it softens up wonderfully. It's other things that I dislike about Noro yarns.
