Prism Delicato Layers

Prism Delicato Layers is a lovely hand dyed lace yarn that is a terrific substitute for more costly silk. Lustrous, smooth and silky, the hand is superior with beautiful stitch definition and blocking retention. Tencel® is ten times more absorbant than cotton, stretches less than rayon, and is environmentally friendly (made from sustainable trees and in a closed-loop system that re-uses all chemicals). Not only great for knitting and crochet, Prism Delicato Layers would be wonderful to weave with too, the equivalent of 6/2 Tencel.

Note: This yarn will only available at the sale price while supplies last.

I am making a lace shawl with this yarn and I'm loving every stitch. It's soft and because it's not wool there is no pilling at all, which I love. The yarn glides very smoothly between my fingers making knitting with it a lovely experience :)

I bought this to weave a scarf, the conifer color looks like a nice light green/blue in the photo, but it's actually more like a dark green/brown, the type of colors used in camoflague. I'm still using it though, because it's sooo soft & silky!

          Comments about Prism Delicato Layers:

          This is the second purchase I've made of this yarn, because I was so impressed with the first garment I made. The colors are very rich, the yarn is supple, smooth, and has such gloss and shine - wow. It required a bit of focus as I worked, as it's a bit slippery (to be expected with this fiber) and any stitches you might drop will run. But the final result is so spectacular, and feels so lovely against your skin, it was well worth it to me. Excellent yardage as well.

          Comments about Prism Delicato Layers:

          I did not give this five stars as I was disappointed in the dullness of the colors. Perhaps it was just the dye lots or colors I chose.
          I will keep checking for other shades more to my liking as the yarn is worthy of a second chance.
          The recipient of the shawl was delighted!

                Comments about Prism Delicato Layers:

                I love the brilliance of color you find in tencel. The colorways of Prism Delicato are also nicely variegated, with subtle color changes that enhance the natural shimmering effect of the yarn. I never really understood 'drape' as a knitting term, before knitting with tencel. Drape to me always conjured up images of drapery, say, of a dusty, old abandoned mansion. Tencel is light and wonderfully suited for patterns that might naturally ripple given a silkier textured yarn. I love it. I knit my scarf in a peacock feather pattern, and its slightly, yet wonderfully wavy.

                Comments about Prism Delicato Layers:

                Sadly, all animal fibers feel prickly to me. Linen does too. As an avid knitter, it is oh so sad! I am always looking for alternatives fibers! This yarn feels nice and drapes nice. It was difficult to knit with. It was slippery. It was hard to hold the working yarn to get an even tension. It was the most splitty yarn I ever knit with. The end result is worth it for me.
