Noro Silk Garden
Birthed in 1991, Silk Garden still has quite a cult following with more than 50,000 projects on Ravelry. According to its creator, Eisaku Noro, "I imagined a yarn that bloomed out of a garden of silk and silk/mohair fabric." Like Kureyon, Silk Garden has long color runs and loose plying that allows for gorgeous blends of color. But with the added content of silk and mohair for a softer, more textured fabric.
