Tsubame: Named for the barn swallow that migrates to Japan during cherry blossom season, this is a classic worsted-weight silk/wool blend. Each oversized 200g skein contains 656 yards making it ideal for an endless variety of one-skein projects!
One of NORO's most colorful creations, Tsubame provides an ever-changing color spectrum as you knit. One ball is enough for a scarf, but it is also a fabulous choice for head-turning sweaters. We dare you to count the number of colors you can find in each ball!
The fiber in each yarn in hand selected and inspected by Master Eisaku Noro from the most reliable and ethical suppliers. Fibers are never treated with acids or harmful chemicals. They are gently spun to preserve original qualities and character.
