You have never met a tencel like this.

Glowing, rich, saturated color hand dyed with care in a smooth, seamless gradient. Softly plied, slight halo, without a hint of splittyness, Lux works up effortlessly to make any project special.

This XL skein is 225g/877y, perfect for crochet patterns that need more yardage and larger knitted pieces.

Available in two lengths; this XL skein, and the standard 150g/585y found here -Lux.
