Merino Wool and Tencel are a good combination. Tencel is considered a semi-synthetic material since its a man made product similar to rayon but uses wood pulp as the feed stock. It's used as a substitute for silk because of it's lower expense. Tencel yarn is frequently used in weaving and makes a lovely soft and flowing fabric. This yarn benefits from the luster and smoothness of the tencel.
