Red in 5/2 Tencel from Teresa Ruch Designs. This lightweight Tencel yarn is beautifully drapey and perfect for shawls, scarves, cowls, wraps, and shrugs.
Tencel is imported from Canada and dyed in Teresa's Oregon Studio. It is made by pulping hard wood into a slurry and extruding it through a chemical which hardens the fibers so they can be gathered and spun into yarns. The chemical is then filtered and reused. The wood is from junk trees that grow in poor soil with very little water and is considered an environmentally friendly product.
