As a handweaver of almost 40 years, I continue to weave exclusively with natural fibers, of which I primarily weave with wool, linen, and hemp, respectively. During these years, I’ve had the opportunity to use multiple sources, providing scores of fibers. I find GIST ‘s linen to be of high, dependable quality, just as GIST Yarn & Fiber (the shop) is as well. Based on my initial purchase of the color Fern and subsequently using it to weave fabric, I then ordered several other pounds (Fog, Salmon, Lupine, Copper, and Aqua) that will also find themselves upon one of my looms for stunning linen fabric.
Ordered 5 colors - all are lovely but this one really deserves a special pattern. Thanks for prompt service and beautiful products.
5 large cones of gorgeous linen yarn in autumn colors - pure happiness! Shipped promptly and fairly priced. My loom and I can hardly wait to see what lovely things we can make.
I bought this based on colors; the lavender color is a perfect match for some vintage china that I own, and I thought it would be great for napkins and placemats. I'd never worked with linen and was a little nervous, but this stuff is fabulous -- it beamed beautifully, my tension is perfect, and there's no trouble with the linen twisting on the bobbins (all things I'd been warned about by people who've worked with linen). This yarn is worth every penny!
Purchased 2 colors to wind with space dyed linen for yardage. It came faster than I expected. It's a quality product; can't wait to start weaving.
