Instead of Mohair it has Cotton (40% cotton, 30% silk, 15% wool, 15% nylon), which makes it soft, light, and airy - perfect for any time, but especially Springy.  Suggested needle size is 4.5mm to 5mm, and the tension is 18 to 16 sts = 4 inches.

Noro Striping Tricks
You can get great striping effects using Noro yarns, all you need to do is use colours of yarn and alternate every other round.
  1. Yarn A is a Noro yarn like Silk Garden, Kureyon or Taiyo. Yarn B is a solid colour, like Cascade 220, Lamb`s Pride Worsted, or Malabrigo Worsted.
  2. Yarn A is one shade of Noro yarn, and Yarn B is another shade of the same Noro Yarn. 
  3. Use only 1 colour of Noro yarn, but Yarn A is taken from inside of skein, and Yarn B is taken from outside of skein (ie. opposite ends of the colourway).
