    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.

    30 epi is about right for a standard twill, higher for a very tight twill

        Comments about Valley Yarns 8/2 Tencel:

        Really love this tencel, I use it for lace items and anything suitable for the lace weight. It's less expensive than silk and so beautiful, the colors are rich and have a good sheen. I've used it for both knitting and some hand embroidery.
        My goal now is to collect more colors!

            This yarn is fabulous to knit lace shawls with. It does take some time but is well worth it. Very forgiving - forget a yarn over? Just pick it up from the rows below and work it up - no one can tell. Blocks wonderfully and is so soft and drapes beautifully.

              Comments about Valley Yarns 8/2 Tencel:

              I use tencel with cotton or silk in scarves, shawls and yardage. The colors are nice and it has a soft glow that compliments cotton. It lowers the price of silk pieces. Weave structures that have worked for me are fancy twills, diversified plain weave and network drafted pieces.
              Tencel does not work well as a floating selvedge because it abrades and falls apart under the stress. I use cotton instead.
              I would love to see finer weights of tencel in your lovely colors for use by weavers. 20/2 in black and white doesn't always work for me.

                Comments about Valley Yarns 8/2 Tencel:

                I make scarves and shawls, and have also made church paraments with Tencel. After washing and pressing, it has a slinky, luxurious feel. But when wet, it feels stiff (reflecting its cellulose heritage). Don't worry - once it dries, the softness returns. The sheen can be subtle, (or not!), and adds interest as the item moves in the light.

                      Lovely fiber for weaving. Makes a supple, soft fabric with some sheen. This and bamboo are my preferred fibers. The only thing I don't like is that there are occasional (VERY occasional) blebs -- not enough to make an interesting texture, but when they're there, they're there). I can live with it, though.
