Cascade PIMA TENCEL,
made in Peru
Lustrous, silky, and ultra soft, Pima Tencel is a natural, 50/50 blend of the finest Peruvian Pima cotton and Tencel (Lyocell). This yarn has the appearance of a luxurious cotton-silk blend, but has a preciously affordable price. Pima Tencel is a next-to-the-skin, eco-friendly yarn. It is also amazingly durable and is suitable for year-round knitwear, hand knit or chunky crochet vests, pullovers, T-shirts, summer tops, and accessories. It is great for men's outfits: scarves, pullovers, and waistcoats. * Note that Tencel, Viscose, and Rayon are often called "fake silks", because they are all natural fibers made of wood pulp. Tencel is resistant to shrinkage and wrinkling.
