More on Spinning the Merino/Tencel

This is a follow-up to my March 11th post on spinning the slippery and shiny Merino/Tencel top.  I spun the singles quite fine, and the resulting two ply looks to be an acceptable sport sized yarn.  Now I have to decide what to knit from this slippery and fairly nonelastic yarn.  I wonder if something in a lace pattern will be more successful than regular stockinette stitch.

  1. Hi Gram! You spun that wool into beautiful looking yarn! It has a really nice subtle shine to it. I don't know if you're looking for opinions, but I think it would work well for a dressy shawl or shrug.
    Love you!

  2. That's what several other people have recommended. I'll have to knit some swatches in some different patterns and see what looks best. I'm told that Tencel handles a lot like silk in knitting; since I've never knit with silk, I guess I'll learn a bit about how silk handles, too!
    Much love,
