I have been using malo yarn making some towels. I like the way the slubs give a natural texture to the towels even when doing a tabby weave. Also what’s important to me is that this yarn is grown, milled, and dyed in the United States.
We need to be mindful of this if we want manufacturing to come back to our country.
Soft and slightly slubby but not thick. As for the color green: I find the on-line picture of the green ("Fir") is "brighter" and has more yellow to it than the real yarn which is a deeper, "bluer" green and, actually, what I prefer. I suggest getting the Mallo swatch color card if you have an absolute specific shade in mind.
Pretty color & nice fiber
I love, love, love this yarn. I have made tea towels and am making a summer top. The slub is just right and the yarn fulls perfectly. The towels are ‘oh so absorbent’.
I've never had a problem ordering here and the yarn is superb!
