Mallo Cotton Slub Weaving Yarn ~ Clay

Plain weave is anything but plain when woven in Mallo. The thick-and-thin nature of this cotton slub creates an elegant, delicate texture, even in the simplest of weaves. Slightly thicker than many weaving yarns, Mallo weaves up quickly on both rigid heddle and multi-shaft looms. Sturdy, soft, and absorbent, Mallo is perfect for towels, napkins, and washcloths as well as lightweight blankets, scarves, and shawls.  

  • 8oz cones / 750 yds
  • Size: similar to 3/2; 1,500 yds per pound.
  • Suggested EPI: 8-16 for rigid heddle and multi-shaft looms.
  • Care: Machine wash and dry. 
  • Made in the USA. Learn more about our sourcing here.

Great for Very First Warp and Weave

I used Mallo and Beam yarns for my first weaving and the tea towels, a Gist free pattern, are quite satisfactory. They were easy to warp and the weaving was fun.

Judith Tuider

Mallo is my favorite of the Gist house yarn. It is perfect for weaving on a rigid heddle and makes a soft textured fabric. I have used Mallo in both warp and weft and have also mixed it with other yarns to include 8/2, 3/2 Beam and Cotton/linen Duet with good results.

I love this yarn and pattern of M's & O's towels I got from you.
I made the towel pattern into a runner. I am so pleased with both!
