Perfect on my rigid heddle - just the look I wanted. Mallo is great for both warp and weft.
Warped my Ashford Rigid Heddle with Mallo Coal, using a 15 dent heddle. Wove 2 sample washcloths, the first with my cotton thread, the second with my linen. These threads are my experiments using a drop spindle, and they range widely from thin to chunky, but I love the effect, combined with the deliciously slubby Mallo!
I think I will weave spa washcloths for holiday gifts, and pair them with artisan soaps. I’d better stock up on Mallo! It is my hands-down favourite cotton!
Learning to spin with a drop spindle, and wove this small piece yesterday. I have been trying to approximate the look and feel of antique grain sacks, and this is pretty darn close. The small pillows in the photo are made from grain sacks. My square was woven with a 15 dent Ashford rigid heddle. I love the texture and soft feel.
The mallow yarn is absolutely wonderful to weave with! I used it in my first woven blanket and it was so easy to work with . Beautiful and soft finished project! I bought more to use for another project . Highly recommend it!
I made a table runner using Cotton Mallo in Natural and Fir and loved weaving with this yarn. I used a rigid heddle loom and a 12-dent heddle. It wove beautifully and has a very nice drape. I highly recommend using this yarn. The napkins are made with 8/2 unmercerized cotton in Natural and Mallo in Fir
