Beautiful for Lacework

This product was awesome for my most recent lacework scarf. I'm buying a second color for a lacework sweater.

I wove a large blanket with this yarn around December of 2009. It is not an overly strong yarn as a warp, I had a lot of breakage on the selvages while weaving, but I kind of expected that. At first the finished product was great, lovely drape, sheen, and softness. As the blanket has been used, however, the yarn has pilled like no other. I'm not talking normal pilling for wool either, these babies are giant. There are fuzzies the size of my pinky nail over the entire surface. I would not suggest this yarn for weaving.

Comments about Valley Yarns 2/10 Merino Tencel (Colrain Lace):

Shredded at edges when used as warp. There are other similarly priced yarns that are sturdier. Nice sheen, however so worth a try for appearance with a tencel warp.

      I Love that there are so many yards for the price.I am making a lightweight, lacy sweater for my sister in law, and I would have needed 2-3 skeins of any other yarn I was looking at ($40-60 average).

        Comments about Valley Yarns 2/10 Merino Tencel (Colrain Lace):

        I used this yarn as the weft and the olive garden variegated valley cotton as the warp as a scarf for my Mom. It turned out very soft and had a wonderful sheen. The next scarf I make I am going to use it doubled as the weft.

        The order was received in a timely manner. Liked the free shipping!

                  Comments about Valley Yarns 2/10 Merino Tencel (Colrain Lace):

                  I love this yarn! For some time I have tried different "lace weight" yarns to knit a lacy scarf or shawl but had to give up because the yarn was was too light weight or rather "wimpy" and it was difficult for me to follow all of the yarn overs and knit togethers with ease. This yarn is wonderful. The weigh is just right and so easy to handle and the sheen is lovely. I especially like that is on a spool and I don't need to wind it.
