Pretty Yarn Day: Meh Edition

Susan's Spinning Bunny SW Merino/Tencel
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.

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.

  1. I think it's pretty, but I know what you mean about the feel of tencel. It's soft, but sort of a "foreign" soft. Pretty, though!

  2. oh, yes, tencel. i like the shine in the fiber, but spinning it makes me feel desperate and always out-of-sorts. you did a great job with this yarn, though!
