A pleasure to work with!

I used this yarn as weft for some twill towels. It wove beautifully and the towels are soft and thirsty. Very nice yarn.

Wanted to love it

It’s so soft and beautiful, but I’ve already broken three warp threads not quite halfway through a 60 inch scarf. The threads fray like mad. I got this in a Crafters Box kit and I’m just not sure I’ll ever use it as warp again. A similar but sturdier warp from Gist would be Mallo, which I am in love with.

Cotton/linen weaving yarn

As a beginning multi-shaft weaver, I appreciate the quality of the yarns we get from Gist. I always get great prices and solid dependability from Gist.

Love this yarn

Wonderful yarn. A bit sticky when warping but wove beautifully and the finished fabric feels amazing. I’ve washed and dried the towels I made and love how this yarn weaves up. I’ve already bought more.

Love this yarn and shopping at Gist!

I ordered this yarn as part of a weaving kit for kitchen towels. I had to wait quite awhile to order it, as it was backordered, but the color was so nice I just didn't want to substitute another color. When I did order it, it arrived quickly and I'm glad I waited for it to be available. I love the color and the feel of this yarn.
