Madara - Noro

Discover the unique charm of Madara, a medium to bulky weight yarn that effortlessly brings a touch of Japanese-inspired elegance to your knitting projects. Ideal for those who prefer a gauge of 15-17 stitches per four inches, Madara works beautifully with US 7-8 (4.5-5.0mm) needles, making it a versatile choice for a wide range of creations.

Crafted with a blend of silk and alpaca added to a wool base, Madara offers a luxuriously soft hand-feel, ensuring your projects are as comfortable as they are beautiful. The heavily twisted texture of the yarn enhances its durability and visual appeal, perfect for heirloom-quality knits.

Available in a variety of semi-solid colors, Madara features delightful nubby flecks, providing unexpected pops of contrasting hues that truly embody its name – 'Madara', meaning 'mottled' in Japanese. These subtle color variations add depth and interest to every stitch, making each knitted piece uniquely captivating.

Whether you're crafting cozy sweaters, elegant scarves, or statement accessories, Madara is the ideal yarn for knitters seeking both quality and aesthetic appeal. Embrace the artistry of this mottled yarn and transform your knitting projects into masterpieces that stand the test of time.
