Uchiwa is the Japanese word for "unfolding fan"; the luxurious blend of cotton, viscose and silk ensure a cooling effect upon the skin, as does a fanned breeze from the leaf fan of the same name. Unique contrasting colour twists create an eye-catching tweedy marl. At the same time, a longer, more subtle colour blending produces a beautiful gradation in the background colouring.

We have collected our favourite patterns for Noro Uchiwa for you here on Ravelry. Many are also available in print as part of Noro Magazine Issue 20 and Issue 22. The 2-4 ball sideways-knit tee pattern #01 Anisie is free with yarn purchase (first photo above), so you can select it from the Free Pattern with Purchase drop-down on this page if you would like us to include a copy with your yarn order.

A worsted-weight, Uchiwa is a similar thickness to Noro Silk GardenKureyon, Tsubame and Ito, so feel free to substitute it in patterns, keeping in mind that each oversized ball of Uchiwa contains a whopping 500 meters / 547 yards!
