Noro Madara is a medium to bulky weight yarn that is heavily twisted. It has a soft, luxurious hand thanks to the addition of silk and alpaca to a wool base. It is available in semi-solids featuring nubby flecks which provide interesting pops of contrasting color throughout this yarn (thus living up to its name - Madara means mottled in Japanese)

This sophisticated blend of wool, silk, and alpaca has a beautiful tweed texture and is perfect for sweaters and cowls alike. Want some inspiration for this gorgeous yarn? The cardigan no.8 by My Favorite Things Knitwear would be gorgeous, or the Terrazzo Sweater by Petitknit.

Hand washing with wool specific soap is recommended. Lay Flat to dry.

The garment should be washed separately. For machine washing, we recommend that all wool garments be washed separately on a wool program, to ensure the gentlest treatment. Centrifuge well and dry the garment flat, preferably on top of a towel. Never use a laundry bag when washing hand-knitted wool garments. This creates friction that can cause the garment to felt.
