Tencel Roving

Aurora
Tencel roving is shiny and beautiful.

And shiny.  

And silvery and shiny. 

I love it.  Especially because it's shiny. 



So I dyed up a whole bunch and put it on my Etsy site.  1 oz bundles.   $6/oz. 

You can spin tencel roving into beautiful fine shiny yarn - it's great plied with wool.  

Or, you can use tencel roving in nuno felting.   Gor. Geous.   

Or you can use tencel roving instead of silk in silk fusion [silk paper] projects.   

You need more fiber in your life.  I think you might need to try some of this.   Here are some more pics to whet your appetite.

  1. What is this beautifully colored roving? Is it made from plant pulp?

    1. You're right! Tencel is sort of a second generation rayon. It's made from the recycled wood pulp leftovers of the paper making industry.
