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.

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

    I could wish it was slightly lighter in weight to match the alpaca, silk, merino wool and combinations of those I use. I usually use four or more yarns in one cowl for variations of color and texture. I love the sheen and rich colors of your merino/tencel yarn.

      I made a pullover with this yarn. It's not splitty at all even with 1.5mm hook and still very drapey. I wish there were more colors.

        I've been using colrain lace in my weaving for several years - it's one of my favorite yarns. It's definitely strong and unstretchy for warp, but also makes beautiful weft. It wet-finishes soft and lovely...it's just a gorgeous weaving yarn.

        I use this yarn for weaving scarves and shawls - it makes a really lovely, soft and warm piece with lovely drape. I'm so happy with the cones that I bought that I came back for more in other colors. I anticipate using it a great deal, both as warp and weft. (I didn't have the breakage issues that some others have mentioned.)

              I love to lace knit and this yarn is just the right texture and weight for my shawls, scarves and light weight sweaters. The colors are.beautiful with a touch of sheen to give the patterns definition. I like the cones because the yarn stays put while you knit. I have about 5 of Colrain Lace colors and will be adding to my stash. I even use the leftover yarn for "combo" projects because the colors mix well together. Great yarn for the price.

                I have used this yarn to make two different summer sweaters. I bought a cone it a year or two ago unsure of how I would use it. It was sitting in my stash when I happened to check out Steve's Deal of the Day listing this yarn. Because there was a link to items that Ravelers had made out of it, I bought another cone and downloaded one of the sweater patterns. I love the feel and the drape. It did shrink, but since I had done my gauge swatch, that was not an issue. It saved me from being alarmed by the finished size before blocking. I made the second sweater as soon as I finished the first. I have gotten many complements on both of them. I will use this yarn again.
