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 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.

    This yarn is very soft and has a beautiful drape. The only small problem with it is that because it is so silky, you can easily drop a stitch.

        I used this product as weft with the 8/2 tencel as warp. The finished product had a wonderful drape and a perfect weight. (not heavy and bulky)

          I love making lace shawls with this yarn. The stitch definition is great and the drape is lovely. I love knitting from a cone so there are only two ends to weave in when I finish.
