noro yarn in the makingA Japanese television program called “Great Gear” recently featured a look into yarn producer Eisaku Noro’s production facilities, and it’s a great bit of eye candy for lovers of knitting and color.

The show calls the yarns “exquisitely colored” and Noro says each of his yarn blends uses 10 to 20 different colors, with the hope of emulating the colors of nature. He says originality is at the top of their list of priorities, which is evident in the company’s lovely yarns.

The company has been around for 40 years and is now distributed in 30 countries. It’s a lot of fun to see how this yarn comes together, especially looking at the stripes lined up as unspun wool.

If you want to see the video, visit the Great Gear website, click on “Hand Crafts Special 2″ and you’ll find it there. I’d love to know what you think of the video or of Noro. I just finished a sweater in it for my next book and it was so much fun to knit!

    Link takes me to the site with many interesting things, but no Noro.
    Disappointing.
