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):

            I knitted a beaded capelet on a Brother standard gauge with T10 for a looser,drapey fabric. It could be worked up on T8 for a light sweater. This yarn has great stitch definition and when I washed it with cold water (no soap) and blocked it, the yarn became even softer while retaining its shape.

                I could wish it was slightly lighter in weight to match the alpaca, silk, merino wool and combinations of those I use. I usually use four or more yarns in one cowl for variations of color and texture. I love the sheen and rich colors of your merino/tencel yarn.
