Characteristic features of Noro yarn are lightness, softness, and loftiness, with thickness of the yarn as an average value. Because it is a handmade yarn with raw materials being weighed and lined by human hands, there are areas that are thick and areas that are thin. There are areas where the strand is tight and where the strand is loose, so please knit gently and discover the joy of knitting Noro yarns.

About knots: unlike other yarn, handmade Noro yarn cannot be continuously spun without knots. The spun yarn is finished by rolling up about 80-90g then the yarn is knotted together and made into a ball or hank. Please understand that in some cases there may be a knot or two in your ball or hank of handspun Noro yarn.
