Italian Cotton/Linen Weaving Yarn ~ White
$ 40.00 USD
A brilliant white.
Gorgeous 50/50 blend of cotton and linen weaving yarn imported directly from a small, family-run mill in Florence, Italy. You can create something truly beautiful and unique with this.
I used the purple as weft for 8/2 cotton towels with a sett of 18. Worked great! Love the yarn. I bought more to weave towels with. If I could attach a photo, I would. Lovely yarn!
I just put my warp on the loom, and let me tell you how awesome it was. No tangles. No sticking. Everything stayed perfect the whole way through. Haven't started weaving yet, but I'm already a lifelong user of this yarn.
I often use "cottolin" yarns in my weaving projects but this is the first I have purchased this particular Italian blend of cotton and linen and it is wonderful! I am super pleased and hope to use this frequently in future projects.
I've used the Italian cotton linen as weft for two projects with a warp of Gist's Linen weaving yarn. It adds a wonderful softness and drape to counter-balance the crispness of the linen (which I also love). I don't think I'll ever try to use this yarn as warp because it really just fell apart when I attempted to hemstitch with it so I don't trust it as warp. That said, not every yarn has to be great for both warp and weft and I love weaving with this yarn.
For a beginner weave , I have learn the type of yarn and example on the different draft on a different projects, and I am very happy with yarn from Gist fiber, Thank you Its so easy to work with
