New Noro yarns at Yarnmarket!

Jan just let us know that she's added three fabulous new Noro yarns to our inventory!

The sample I'm showing is Noro Retro, a luxurious blend of wool, silk & angora. It's a tone-on-tone worsted weight yarn that will be perfect for multi-season use. The colours are absolutely sumptuous. This Sea Blue/Green will look good on everyone.

We've also added heavy-worsted Noro Bonbori that's spun with one strand of multi-hued, brushed wool entwined with a thin strand of contrasting shade.

And, last but not least is Noro Vintage, that is reminiscent of earlier times & fashions. This versatile, worsted-weight yarn has lovely drape and gorgeous color combos. It's a soft blend of 64% wool, 24% silk & 12% angora.

All Noro yarns are crafted in Japan and are known for their deep, rich, dyed-in-the-wool colors. They can be hard to find, so be sure to order what you need for your autumn projects!
