I am a beginning weaver and would not had a successful first project without this yarn. It was VERY forgiving! The colors were as expected. I will purchase this yarn again and again, I am so very pleased with the results. Christine and the website are incredible resources, every question I had was answered! Christine was so amazing, she helped me pick my project, coordinate colors and calculated the difference for epi as I have a 7.5 heddle.
I used the Beam in a Monk’s Belt pattern. I was very pleased with the look, feel and function of the yarn!
I have found the perfect site with Gist to purchase such a variety of rigid heddle loom patterns and kits. Always top quality yarn and patterns that are fun to make on small looms. Thank you Christine. I have quite a backlog of projects to weave; however, I’ll keep checking your website.
Great bright colors and a strong fiber for dishtowels and dishcloths.
I love the new beam yarn. It is tightly spun which makes for tight patterns and it is very easy to place a thread precisely where you want it. The yarn as spun is very strong, which is another plus. I am presently weaving a set of placemats in a goose eye twill. They are working up beautifully. I haven't wet finished any yet, but expect the bloom to only improve them. I will order more. The only shortcoming, we could use some more darker and more highly saturated colors.
