Back in space! Noro Kureyon is a classic favorite and truly one of the first self striping yarns. くれよん(pronounced coo-ray-oh-n) is the Japanese pronunciation of the English “crayon;” thus, the literal name of the yarn is “crayon.” Danielle has been knitting with it for over 15 years! Kureyon features Noro’s signature color changes, and the yarn base has been updated to a softer, squishier wool. Just like the changing colors of fall leaves, let the gorgeous shifting hues do all of the work in your next project. With 110 yards in 50g skeins, this yarn is perfect for small projects, or mix and match colors and pair with solids! It also felts beautifully. We have nine fun colorways available.
