Teresa Ruch Designs Handpainted Tencel 3/2 4 oz 312 yards
Teresa Ruch Designs has been in production since 2009. Originally focused on weaving, the yarn has become a larger part of our business in the last 2 years. We maintain an emphasis on color and hand in both the yarn and weaving.
The tencel is imported from Canada and dyed in her Oregon Studio. It is made by pulping hard wood into a slurry and extruding it through a chemical which hardens the fibers so they can be gathered and spun into yarns. The chemical is then filtered and reused. The wood is from junk trees that grow in poor soil with very little water and is considered an environmentally friendly product.
