        The combination of wool and Tencel in this yarn is lovely. The Tencel adds softness and a classy sheen. I am making a long sweater vest and greatly enjoy the feel of working with this yarn. I'm sure I will enjoy wearing the finished garment.

          Comments about Berroco Lustra Discontinued Colors:

          I knitted up the gauge swatch and washed it as I wanted to see how the tencel behaves. I also rubbed it and rubbed it and rubbed it as I wanted to see if the tencel pills/balls. It has behaved beautifully! I will be knitting it up into a sweater which will be drapey, silky and with a gorgeous soft halo. Due to it's weight I'll be looking for a sweater design with cables/textures/aran design as it will hold the pattern as well as be soft to wear. This is a single ply so I tried to untwist it and pull it apart. It would not break because the fibres are very long! Do not worry about it unraveling or of it splitting - it is a very strong yarn!

          Soft glow

                Comments about Berroco Lustra Discontinued Colors:

                When I read the description that this was Peruvian and Tencel I couldn't imagine how that Tencel could outweigh the Peruvian to make for such a beautiful beautiful lustre. It's perfectly named. I ordered this in a candy pink and a bright green. They are so beautiful just to look at in their skeins I don't even want to use them yet. I just want to look at them and feel them, they're so silky, soft and strong. I ordered more on the spot in case the supply is low. I'll be interested to see what projects others are doing with these.

                This is a really nice yarn. It's unspun, so you should be pretty good at whatever you're doing. The colors are really rich. You can twist it as you use it, giving it a tighter feel.
