Now that I've totally gone gaga over Noro Iro, I find that cash flow is somewhat limited at the moment. Are there any other yarns {read: cheap} that have those long colorways that Noro does??

Iro is on closeout at yarn.com. You may want to look, great prices!

Paton's SWS or Rowan Tapestry. These are both wool/soy blends, but have nice long color changes. There's also a new yarn out - Boku - that is similar to Noro but not as spendy. I forget who makes it, unfortunately.

I was just going to come and say Boku--it's Plymouth.

the boku is very soft to use! and nice (dependable) color changes/striping :)

Same here - I haven't been able to try it yet, but I've heard wonderful things about Boku :D

You guys are great! :muah::muah: I have written everything down and will check it out. I'm afraid to go to yarn.com...I love that site! I could easily spend waaaay too much there! This board is the greatest! :inlove: Thanks ever so much!

www.littleknits.com has Iro on sale :happydancing:You can get a bag for $90 or get it for $11 per skein.

Not that I'm enabling you, or anything.:angelgrin:
