Named after its designer and founder, Eisaku Noro, the company is known for its artistic approach to creating yarn and colour compositions. Noro prides itself in doing as much production as possible by hand in order to preserve the natural characteristic of the fibre. Founded over 30 years ago in Japan, Noro yarns are now known globally and they continue to impress knitters with their selection of raw materials, production, and constant care.
Noro makes their yarn for people who are charmed by the non-uniformity, unevenness, & coarseness of nature. Their wool comes from certified organic farms, from Australia, the Falkland Islands and South Africa. Their yarns are minimally processed, which benefits both the yarn and the environment.
