Last year, Noro released Ito as a brand-new yarn. It has been a major best-seller, a lovely yarn with gorgeous colorways.
We just brought in more colorways and hope you enjoy. Two of these we have had before; two are new to us.
There are really so very many designs that would look awesome with this. I mention one below and if you'd like any further suggestions, please contact me.

Ito is 100% wool and looks quite reminiscent of their standard Kuryeon. The yarn is a bit softer right away as some merino is spun in, and as is the case with most of Noro's yarns, once it is washed it softens up amazingly.
What makes this yarn unique is it is 437 yards (400m)/ 200g of Noro's traditionally looooong color runs, in vibrant tones. Truly deliciously gorgeous.
Yubari (color #3) is a wonderfu blend of what I think of as summertime garden colors. There are greens of varying tones from spring green into evergreen, there are sky blues and violets, browns and golds, reds and oranges and all sorts of hues in between. (Sorry, sold out.)
Bizen (color #4) is a deeper blend of colors, with some very dark tones as well as a blend of lighter ones. I see browns and reds, yellows, golds and teals, a bit of aqua, some orange, some magenta and wine -- and I probably left some out as well. Think of a late-summer-early-autumn garden after the sun has set.
Uma (color #6) plays predominantly with green tones, along with highlights of turuqoise and teal, a bit of eggplant, some brown, a touch of blue and bits and pieces of other hues as well.
Nabari (color #13) is a warm mix of colors, with gold standing out beautifully. It also showcases reds and oranges, lime and a bit of brown with occasional surprises in the way of turquoise and teal.
And let me suggest an awesome pattern by Xandy Peters for this one. Check out her Petal Scarf. Ito has great color spans and repeats plus perfect yardage for making this. (In fact, I am working on one myself!) Xandy's original is shown in the last photo on this page (though knit in a different yarn, this will give you an idea of how these colors might sing).
