A True Fairy Tale

Once upon a time, in a land far far away called Japan, there was a man named Eisaku Noro who decided that he didn't like color rules.

And so he chose to make yarns from certified organic farms around the world using colors that no one else would put together, like hot pink next to rust and hunter green beside lime. And lo and behold, it all worked and the magical folk who could take two sticks and some thread and create the most wondrous garments, flocked to buy his yarns with the wild colors and textures.

He became a world wide sensation and was greatly revered in the sticks and thread world. Books and magazines were devoted to his work. Designers clamored to be one of the Noro gang, and little shops were thrilled when the magic yarn came in like big Christmas presents, for they knew that these brightly colored balls and hanks would one day be reborn into special gifts for loved ones made by the magical folk.

And so we too have just recently had boxes brought to our door containing the magic yarn.

And if you need some Noro inspiration we have the following copies of Noro publications.

We know that the magical folk will be in to soon and we hope that you will be one of them. Soon they will be all gone and yet the magic will continue. The end is not the end.
