i bought this superwash merino/tencel from Susan's Spinning Bunny at last year's Finger Lakes Fiber Festival. it looks disheveled because this is one of the fibers that my cat Ellie decided to gnaw.
3ply worsted weight
spun longdraw from the fold, soaked and thwacked to finish
i've come to the conclusion that i do not like tencel, even in a blend. it's weird--it doesn't seem like it should be much different from bamboo, but it's much more plastic-y and unpleasant to spin. it almost squeaks. it is nice and soft though.
i was hoping to eke out a baby sweater but i have very little yardage. maybe i can do another Baby Sophisticate for Spicy's nephew. it's a cute one and it doesn't take a whole lot of yarn.
