This exquisite bluish purple yarn is the color of the autumn branches laden with berries! The delightful color was extracted from wild elderberries. Tencel is a really excellent yarn to use, both in terms of its inherent properties and its environmental impact. Tencel fibres are produced from wood pulp from eucalyptus trees, and are one of the most environmentally friendly fibres around. They are sourced from environmentally and socially responsible sources, use non-toxic processes to produce the fibres, and thanks to the properties of the natural material it never requires bleach. Tencel yarn is a little firmer and less 'floppy' than some other cellulose fibres, however it is still very soft, absorbent, and strong both when wet and dry. It also doesn't wrinkle and it drapes well, making it an ideal choice for both clothing and accessories. This skein weighs 40g and contains approximately 318m (348 yds).
