      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):

            This yarn was the yarn recommended in a pattern for a woven scarf. It breaks too easily, especially at the selvedges, to be used for a warp. One test of a warp yarn is to give it a good tug, if it breaks, it is not really suitable for warping. It broke with a moderate tug. I love the red and blue together, but I have spent a lot of time repairing broken warp threads. The weft threads have stayed intact. I haven't knitted with it, so I don't know how well it knits.

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

            I made a ball gown using the lace weight yarn for a very large skirt (gradually increasing to 5000 stitches) naturally this took a lot of time and handling. unfortunately by the time I finished, the beginning of this piece looked really old. disappointing as I was trying to create an heirloom piece and it took me hours to make.

              I"m using this for a knitted shawl. I'm holding two strands together to get fingering weight. The tencel adds a nice sheen.

                This Colrain lace is perfect as a weft for weaving scarves. The colors are lovely, it is soft and contributes to a beautiful drape in the finished scarf. It has such a soft hand, that I know there are lace knitting projects for the remainder of the cone.
