I just started weaving about 6 months ago and have already made 3 scarves from this yarn because I love it so much. For a beginner, it is easy to work with but the texture in the yarn makes it look much more complicated than it really is. I even got really brave and started adding some weft and warp floats like one of the other reviewers did. The scarves are really soft and beautiful. Love this stuff.
I love Mallo. It is strong enough for warp and I have yet to find a knot while warping. The slubs add texture to the weaving and fringe. And it washes and dries beautifully. I think my shrinkage (in width) is about 20% including what is lost when fulling the fabric. I have combined it with a variety of other warp and weft fibers with great results.
The yarn looks and feels great am looking forward to my first project using the yarn.
But not sadder than sad! Eclipse was, yet again, a wise Gist purchase. It is a beautiful deep navy and complements so many other Mallos. I only wish these cones came in 2x the quantity since Mallo might be my go-to cotton.
