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 double the threads for both warp and weft and it weaves up beautifully for scarves.

        Comments about Valley Yarns 8/2 Tencel:

        Silky smooth and soft to the touch, works great as either warp or weft (or both, of course). Floating selvedges can be prone to fraying, but nothing unreasonable considering the weight of the tencel. So far every color I have used has been rich and evenly dyed. The color cards are very helpful, as some (but not all) colors are different in real life than they appear on the monitor.

        Machine washes well.

          I reported my issues with two orders of Tencel to Customer Service which I purchased recently. I am very, very disappointed in the quality of the fibers I bought and I actually had some substituted for something I ordered.

                          Laceweight yarn with beautiful drape and shine, easy to knit and block.

                          The only downside was that actual yarn color and color on my monitor were quite different.
