I made a table runner using Cotton Mallo in Natural and Fir and loved weaving with this yarn. I used a rigid heddle loom and a 12-dent heddle. It wove beautifully and has a very nice drape. I highly recommend using this yarn. The napkins are made with 8/2 unmercerized cotton in Natural and Mallo in Fir
I am teaching myself to spin cotton on the drop spindle. I combined Mallo natural in the warp of my 15 dent RH, with my homespun for the weft, and I love the result! Here are photos of my sample piece. I experimented with A: two strands of Mallo in each slot and hole, and B: one strand of Mallo in each slot and hole.
You can see the difference in thickness and texture. The A fabric is thick but very soft. I think it would make a wonderful summer jacket, or placemats or a table runner. The B fabric is a little more open and nubby, which I love. It would make a lovely shawl or throw. I actually like the idea of trying a runner with alternating strips.
I LOVE Mallo!
Looking forward to more spinning and experimenting. I think Mallo will be my go-to warp for my handspun projects.
I love this yarn. I had several warp yarns break and became an expert in repair but after fixing and wet finishing the towels I could not find the repairs very forgiving and I really like the texture of the finished product. Made my husband a scarf and he loves it and me!
I used the natural color Mallo cotton slub for my warp. I was very pleased with how it wound on. I am weaving kitchen towels; the weave structure is Overshot. The tabby is the Mallo, the pattern is a slightly thicker yarn. So far I am very pleased with the results. 2 towels done, 5 to go….It will be interesting how they finish….
