Mallo Pre-order

by Emma Rhodes

Through Thick & Thin

In August of 2019 we released Mallo, our second line of weaving yarn. Mallo is a thick and thin textured cotton that is grown, spun and dyed in the USA. Our customers love this yarn so much that it has been sold out for months, and we are excited to share that it will be fully restocked this June!

The initial release of Mallo was powered entirely by your pre-orders. As a small business, taking on a project like developing a new line of yarn would have been impossible without the support of our community. Your belief in our team and vision made all of this possible. 

This week we are introducing 5 new colorsto the Mallo line, bringing the collection to 12 shades.

We are once again inviting our community to be a part of this launch with a pre-order. Your support earns you a special pre-order discount (see details below), a free color card, and the joy that comes from supporting the US farmers, mill, and dye house that bring this yarn to life. 

Your yarn will ship in June 2020.
