    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.

      I knit my first lace shawl using Merino Tencel, and am extremely happy with the result. This yarn has a nice sheen with a bit of halo, and drapes beautifully. Another winner in the Valley Yarns collection!

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

              I love this yarn! For some time I have tried different "lace weight" yarns to knit a lacy scarf or shawl but had to give up because the yarn was was too light weight or rather "wimpy" and it was difficult for me to follow all of the yarn overs and knit togethers with ease. This yarn is wonderful. The weigh is just right and so easy to handle and the sheen is lovely. I especially like that is on a spool and I don't need to wind it.

                Can't wait to start my winter collection of scarves and ponchos. This yarn works well with Valley Yarns Tencel. Sheen and drape is wonderful in both yarns.
