Noro Enka

Noro Enka is a lovely offering for spring 2021.  A silky soft blend of 50% Cotton, 20% Silk, 15% Wool, 15% Polyamide, Enka boasts a generous 550 nyds/200g barrel.  While the label says 21-24 stitches per 4 inches, I have swatched it at more like 18-20 stitches over 4" and I think Enka is much happier at that gauge.  There are several wonderful designs for Enka in the Noro Knitting Magazine Issue 18

Ball band says Enka knits to 21-24 stitches over 4in on us 5 (3.75 mm ) to US 7(4.5mm)
