Hi,
Does anyone know who makes this yarn and how I might contact them for my store? Also, what do you think of this yarn as compared/contrasted to Noro? Thanks in advance for your help.

I do not sell this yarn, so I cannot tell you how it compares to Noro. But, I found out the contact info in summer TNNA market directory. The distributor is:

Seaport yarns (NYC) also carries it.(they have a web page, i think its seaport.com, but i am not sure)

the colorways aren't as spectacular, but the yarn is much softer.

they have some beautiful 'carry along yarns' (see pink sweater in knitting album, its made with 'toppings' a mini pompom yarn (only sold to my knowledge in japan, my sister brought me some)

See my photo albums, (edit-NO PASSWORD REQUIRED) http://img78.photobucket.com/albums/v299/oftroy/

We bought it as a possible trial to fall away from Noro because of deliveries. After knitting up, we were pleasantly surprised-it's quite beautiful. Not as subtle as Noro in colorations, but, nice just the same.And as mentioned, softer. I would definately recommend adding to your stock. KL
