Feeling Tencel?

Hooray! The yarn to complete the twin set arrived! (Thank you to the lovely ladies of Yarntopia!) Now to hunker down and git-r-done! "Premiere" is made in Peru for Classic Elite Yarns. It is 50% pima cotton and 50% tencel, an environmentally friendly fiber that is just amazing. The colors are so rich and the drape and sheen are like nothing you've ever seen in cotton. It transforms cotton into nearly alpaca in softness and nearly silk in sheen/drape. Amazing. Click here to read more about tencel and other earth friendly fibers:
