I wish they would put in which Noro Taiyo yarn they used, I tried to look up the details and there is 7 listings on ravelry for this yarn. The link under the picture just takes you to knitting fever website, so no help there either.

Hi Lisa, it does say above Noro Taiyo shade #50. I don't know if that shade has an actual name or just the number, but if you search online by the color number you will find it. It has the colors Black, Aqua, Red, Green, Navy, and Fuchsia in it and is a blend of cotton, silk, wool, and nylon.

Shade #50 is a reference to the yarn colour, so it is actually of no help to find the actual yarn.

This bag is a delight. A stunning gift to give and equally stunning if kept for one's own use.

Noro makes such beautiful colorways and the ones used in this bag are just gorgeous. I like the size, not too big and not too small, and all the cabling in it. Cables are one of those things that look much harder than they actually are and they're really fun once you get the knack. I wish I could enlarge the photo so I could see the cables up close, though. Does anyone know how to do that?

Some photos will enlarge if you click on them, but this one won't. The only other way is if you have an image editor of any kind, to download the image and enlarge it. I have found that often just downloading it to the computer allows me to see it better.
