bought this yarn on a whim because it was on sale and I have owned clothes made from tencel in the past and loved them. Making a lightweight baby blanket and I love this yarn. it leaves a bit of lint behind, but I think this will likely improve after washing. Also, it does split occasionally but not so often that it impedes your progress. And it is so silky and gorgeous. has a little sheen and just glides through the hook. I wish there was more in stock!!
