Picked up a cone of this yarn while visiting Webs this Spring with the intent of using it as a "Tag along" yarn (to be used with another yarn whose color I disliked).

While it would make a nice "tag-along", I did not use as intended. Instead, made a lovely lace shawl with it! It turned out fantastic, and has received many compliments! The Color "Greyed Teal" was beautiful, yarn was very soft and had a wonderful silken sheen.

Would definitely purchase again.

The yarn itself is fine, no problems. But beware if a color is backordered! I was initially told that it would be between two and three weeks for my backorder to arrive. After not receiving it, I contacted them again and was told no, it could be another one to two months for it to show up as the yarn is manufactured for them by a mill outside of the country. Hugely disappointing as I ordered many different colors for several projects and now I am waiting for the backorder in order to complete these projects.

        I use Webs Valley tencel quite a bit in my weaving studio and love the color range, quality of the yarn and consistent even dyeing.

        My only criticism is i wish it also came in 10/2 !

        I have one or more of every color available and very much enjoy the new colours recently added to the line up
