Shiny Dime’s 5/2 undyed tencel is lovely yarn! It takes dye very well
Love the suggestions and color choices, but wish there were more choices unless I just could not find more colors.
Absolutely gorgeous warps. Killer colors! I love them.
EZPZ ordering and delivery. Filling the gaps in my thread color palette.
Unfortunately, this cone of 5/2 black tencel yarn is not like the other dyed warp tencel yarns in the shop. It is thin, loosely twisted and not regular in thickness.
I can provide photo’s comparing the yarns if you want.
Thank you for your honest review. I'm sorry to hear the Black Tencel™ didn't work out for you! Truly dark black is a difficult color to acheive, so I send my undyed yarn out to have it commercially dyed. It's the same yarn I use in all my dyeing, but to get it such a deep black color, the process does seem to change the characteristics of the yarn a little. Winding the finished yarn onto a cone, rather than hanging to dry and straightening/fluffing like I do, flattens the yarn and prevents the twist from...blooming you could call it? The company that dyes my yarn black wash it many times, and do a great job making the yarn bleed little to no color. I've woven with it and it seems to have a good hand and appearance after washing finished projects, perhaps slightly less lustrous. I will be happy to arrange a return if the yarn isn't the right quality for you!
