For those of us who love a sale, here is a SALE! I had purchased some hanks of NORO Maiko (dk) at our LYS sale bin, but they didn't have as much as I would like. So I ventured into WEBS online, and they are offering all of the colors at half price! Reg $10.95 (ouch) for $5.49 (nice!) and with a generous 132 yds per hank!
The Maiko doesn't stripe like most Noro's, nor does it have a lot of crazy colors, like most Noro's. It is kind tweedy-esque! It goes well with the new Noro Retro, that has subtle colorwaves in the same color.
Maiko is 35% Wool/30% Kid Mohair/35% Silk. Sweet! Check out the 13 colors available!
Here is a swatch of Maiko in my color:
