I recently finished weaving a set of towels & washcloths using Mallo and Duet yarns. I modified the draft of Overshot Rigid Heddle towels by Christine Jablonski for my 4 shaft loom, used 3 colors of Mallo; Clay, Brick, Coal, and Duet in Marble. Used patterns for columns and pairs in Ann Dixon's 4 shaft loom pattern reference book. The Mallo and Duet were excellent to weave with! And the towels & washcloths machine wash & dry well with no bleeding of color. They are soft, and we love using them! It's a real joy to weave with yarns of such high quality.

I have found my favorite cotton yarn. It is easy to work with and works up beautifully. I wish there were a few more color choices, other than that I love this slubby cotton.
This was a strong fiber that finishes soft and “cushy”.
I bought this yarn in a different color. I loved the fabric so much I bought a LOT of the spice to make a very light blanket. I can’t wait to weave it up!
I've been weaving with Mallo for about a year and I am in love with it. It makes a beautifully textured cloth with an excellent drape.
