I’ve only been weaving ( RH) for a year now, but have been pretty busy making gifts for friends and family. I found Gist early on, and it’s predominantly what I use.I started with Duet, but when I needed some particular colors I tried Mallo. It is now my go-to yarn! I just make up patterns based on colors I have on hand. If I have a novelty yarn or a yarn not strong enough for warp, I always use Mallo for the warp, and all the projects have turned out so lovely! It softens up so nicely. It worked perfectly for a baby blanket I made. My only complaint would be that we need more colors! Yellows, reds, etc!
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.
I love the texture of this yarn - it adds so much to my weaving without being "over-bearing" (!). It also holds tension well and is not sticky but holds weft in place. I think I have two or three cones (maybe more) now. Highly recommended!
A pleasure to work with. I am pleased.
Mallo yarn is gorgeous! I ordered it in Natural, Ink, Denim, Brick and Steel. I've been traveling, so, I've just recently opened my box of Mallo. But, I can say the yarn feels soft and all the colors are beautiful...the dye job on this yarn looks even and the shades are rich but not 'bright'. The 'slubbiness' of the yarn isn't so great that it would get caught in heddles, so, I think it's going to work up quite nicely in towels and scarves.
