Italian Cotton/Linen Weaving Yarn ~ Eggshell
$ 41.00 USD
A lovely eggshell with cool undertones.
What’s not to love!
This wonderfully thick and thin yarn creates great texture in the simplest weaving. I love it for napkins.
I am new to weaving so please keep this in mind when reading :) I found this yarn to be a bit difficult to work with when warping but I love the color and as a weft it is awesome! I will definitely order again
At first I had a bit of a bit of a learning curve warping the cotton and linen slub, but one that is well worth the effort. Christine suggested a few tricks and VOILA! A beautiful heirloom for my son and his soon to be wife. Thank you GIST & Christine! P
This is a very lovely yarn but I'm finding it a little trying to work with. The cotton slub of the ply continues to pull away from the linen if gets rubbed too much from the reed or while hemstitching. I've had several areas where the linen doesn't break but the cotton has sloughed off. I've had to re-thread more than once in the middle of project. Frustrating.. Not sure I'll buy this again...
