Beautiful for Lacework

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

weak as a warp, does not wear well

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):

    I have used this yarn to make two different summer sweaters. I bought a cone it a year or two ago unsure of how I would use it. It was sitting in my stash when I happened to check out Steve's Deal of the Day listing this yarn. Because there was a link to items that Ravelers had made out of it, I bought another cone and downloaded one of the sweater patterns. I love the feel and the drape. It did shrink, but since I had done my gauge swatch, that was not an issue. It saved me from being alarmed by the finished size before blocking. I made the second sweater as soon as I finished the first. I have gotten many complements on both of them. I will use this yarn again.

    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).

          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.
