At Gist Yarn, we're proud to contribute to a thriving textile industry by working with fiber farmers, spinning mills, and dyehouses to develop yarn for weavers. We make and carry weaving yarns in a wide variety of fibers, including high quality cotton, linen, wool, alpaca, and silk in a variety of sizes. Most of our yarn (unless otherwise indicated) is suitable for warp on a rigid heddle or multi-shaft loom.
