Tencel® 10/2 & 20/2
This natural yarn is a great addition to the weaving family. Tencel® is made out of 100% Lyocell, which is a fully natural cellulose fibre. Lyocell is made out of wood pulp and then chemically processed to create the fibre and yarn. The making of lyocell is a semi-synthetic process and a registered trademark.
Weaving with Tencel is a bliss. This yarn has a very special drape and beautiful shine. It is quite unique in its appearance. The feel is lovely smooth and soft. Tencel is rather slippery to work with and quite similar to the bamboo fibre.
This yarn comes in two sizes, a 10/2 and 20/2. The 10/2 is about the size of an 8/2 cotton, but the 20/2 is very fine and delicate. Both yarns are available in natural only. The tencel yarn takes the dye very well and is easy to colour with fibre reactive dyes.
Suitable for weaving, embroidery or stitching.
