Blue Lagoon Merino/Tencel Fingering Weight Yarn

This is a beautiful yarn from The Woolen Rabbit. The yarn is greener than it looks in this photo, though.

I've just started knitting a Diamond Fantasy Shawl with it. I'm on row 40 or so (tip up, not center down) and it looks very good to me. As I knitted I started wondering about the yarn. Is a Merino/Tencel yarn suitable for lace? Is it going to block well?

Would anyone with experience with knitting lace with Merino/Tencel care to comment? I'd love to hear any opinions.
