Beam 8/2 is a workhorse yarn you’ll reach for again and again, ideal for towels, table linens and lightweight scarves or shawls. It is wonderful for traditional twill structures and as the ground and tabby yarn in overshot when paired with Beam 3/2 or 3/4. This new weight comes on 4oz cones, making it easier for you to stock up on more colors.
Beam 8/2 cotton is a beautiful, strong cotton that weaves up into a sturdy yet soft fabric. The colors are lovely. I am enjoying weaving with it; it feels good in my hands and the results are very satisfying.
My warp is Beam in Natural 8/2 cotton. My weft is various colors of Duet. I loved both the Beam and Duet. I have another 4 yards of warp on my loom which I am going to weave additional towels in another set of Duet colors that I have. The weave structure is Monk Belt. I was very pleased with the results. The towels washed beautifully. All the towels will be gifts for friends.
So far so good. Weaving with it now. It’s a little fuzzy but I think it will be soft and beautiful!
The colors are amazing and will be great for dishtowels!
