Soft, smooth and shiny, this silky vegan yarn is made from tencel, the fiber from wood pulp cellulose. The natural fiber was hand-dyed in a lovely mulberry hue, with occasional splashes of gold, green, violet, and steel blue.
This 3 ounce/85 gram skein has approximately 34 yards/31 meters of double-ply yarn. At 9 WPI, this is a bulky-weight yarn that knits up to 3 - 4 stitches per inch on #10 needles.
"TENCEL®, made from wood pulp cellulose, offers a unique combination of the most desirable properties of man made and natural fibers: soft as silk, strong as polyester, cool as linen, warm as wool and as absorbent as cotton. TENCEL® absorbs excess liquid and quickly releases it again into the atmosphere.
The combination of a smooth fiber surface and excellent moisture absorption creates a positive environment for healthy skin, making TENCEL® ideal for anyone with sensitive skin. Also, TENCEL® is chemical free, an important factor for sensitive skin and another asset in comparison to other fibers of a natural origin."
Items made with this yarn may be machine washed in cool water and machine dried on low heat.
