Great yarn to weave with.

I have used this yarn for two projects now, a table runner and now kitchen towels which I am currently working on. It is easy to weave with and a great color.

Brassard first time

My first time using Brassard since I’m at the beginning of my weaving journey. I use a rigid heddle and made what I thought would be four napkins but turned out to be a scarf. Easy to use with no big tension problems. I used the 8/4 with 12 dent reed.

Prompt processing and shipping

The service from Gist is outstanding. I used the Brassard unmercerized 8/4 cotton for dishtowels, but I feel it is a little coarse compared to the 8/2 that I normally use. I hope it softens with time.

Loved this yarn…was exactly what I needed for my “Bengals” placemats for my brother!
