    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.

      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.

                  Comments about Valley Yarns 8/2 Tencel:

                  Weaving with Tencel has become a delight. The problem comes when the fiber is not consistant with taking dyes. This time, the "gold" was "brassy" and when making school color scarves, a nightmare. Otherwise, the drape the feel and the weaving of Tencel is a dream.
