    I have used Pima Tencel for a lot of my flapper hats and cloches. I like the body,the sheen, the softness and the weight. It makes the flapper hats have some stability, so you can "play" and change the brim, thus creating a different look.

    There are good and bad points on this yarn. Good - it is soft, not at all warm for tropical weather, give well-definied stitches, not splitty, nice hand, and can survive gentle machine-wash. Bad - Pilly (can't wear with any dark colour garment) and heavy (for its weight). In addition, I wonder how long will the garment made out of this yarn will last due to its pilly nature. Only time can tell.

    So soft and love the drape

        Comments about Cascade Yarns Pima Tencel:

        I really like this yarn. I used it to make 2 children shrugs. It's very soft to work with and drapes beautifully, and I'm sorry that it's been discontinued. However, it is splitty and the ends fray terribly. I just finished blocking the shrugs and am going to have to go back and put Fray Check on all the ends.

        I made matching gloves & scarves and they are so soft and warm. It saddens me that I found it a little late so I'll have to search for another yarn that is comparable to it.

          Cotton typically hurts my hands when I use it. This yarns does not. It works easily and beautifully. The slight sheen is pretty but subtle. This yarn feels wonderful in your hands. It is truly a pleasure to knit.

            Pima Tencel feels so good, I was excited about making hats for chemo patients. However, this yarn knits to a DK gauge. It also sheds quite a bit, leaving lots of fuzz on my lap. I love how it feels, so will adjust my patterns or find some written for DK.

              Comments about Cascade Yarns Pima Tencel:

              This yarn is great. It's got a really nice, soft texture and the knitting drapes well. It's not particularly stretchy and has a pleasant weight to it. I haven't had any problems with it being splitty or otherwise difficult to work with and it hasn't pilled or fuzzed or felted even though I can't resist petting it all the time.

              I'm making an afghan with it and I expect it will be quite heavy but I concider that a pro, not a con.

                I haven't knit much yet with this yarn, only a gauge for a cardigan. I already love the texture and the softness. It's gonna be perfect. I will buy this yarn again for sure.

                        Product has beautiful texture, but it is being discontinued. I ordered the amount my project stated, but it ended up not being enough, and when I came back to order more, the color is no longer available. Be careful and purchase more than you think you need for any project.

                          Service and delivery comments:

                          I love purchasing yarn from yarn.com....as there are so many options and it brings about an air of uniqueness, rather than having the same style/color yarn at the local hobby shops. :)
