With a name that means "thick sun," Taiyo has a wonderful next-to-the-skin softness and sheen. A delightful fiber mix of cotton, silk, wool, and nylon, it is comprised of two soft spun, thick-to-thin, multicolored strands. This perennial Noro classic makes great scarves, wraps, sweaters or luxurious home decorating projects.
Like many Noro yarns, this yarn is delicate and is not heavily spun. It can break while working, especially if pulled with a bit of force. I experienced this while using one of our Hazel Rose looms and a weaving needle. Of course, the resulting fabric was oh-so-soft, so I thought it was worth it.
