Noro Clapotis Scarf

In November I ordered this single skein of Noro Silk Garden Sock yarn in color s269 from WEBS. Inspired directly by this clapotis scarf. I don’t normally go for pale neutrals like this but there is such amazing depth of color in this yarn. It’s Noro, so it’s a little “rustic” and there were two knots in the skein which didn’t bother me. I managed to use all but 4″ of this skein of yarn, something about which I am truly thrilled. And now, for a close up:

A wee yarn review. Yarn is thick and thin. I doubt I would use it for socks, but I love it for this scarf. I find it very soft to the touch, even around my face, but mileage will vary on that one! Like I said, there were 2 knots, 3 is acceptable per manufacturing standards and because of the neutral color palette there weren’t any harsh jumps in the color sequence. Not very much vegetable matter in the skein either, although I’ve heard that can be an issue with Noro’s yarns. All-in-all, I really enjoyed working with it, I would use it again for similar projects and I think it’s worth the cost (MSRP $19.95)
