Mallo Cotton Slub Weaving Yarn ~ Steel

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.

Gist has beautiful colors and luscious yarns.

Mallow Yarn

This was part of my first purchase from Gist yarn. I ordered the subscription box and added Mallo Cotton weaving Slub Yarn. Everything arrived on time. The colors and texture of all yarns is beautiful. I know I’ll use the Natural Slub Yarn as part of a project.

Sister gets a scarf

This was the perfect pattern I was looking for. I needed to stay in the dark palette to make a scarf for my daughter. This was the first time working with these cotton threads. Easy to warp and weave on my 1955 Macromber Baby Mac loom. I definitely would work with these cotton threads in the future

My dream yarn!

Mallo is my dream yarn. I love the slubby texture, the way the yarn glides through my hands, the gorgeous colors, the ease with which it weaves up, and the final look and feel of the projects! Thanks, Gist, for a wonderful product and excellent service!
