Makes the most beautiful towels. Highly recommend!
Mallo is one of my favorite yarns. The texture is subtle and has a pleasing, soft texture. Washes beautifully. I have made table runners, kitchen towels and scarves. Versatile!
Cotton mallo slub is the first yarn I’ve used as a novice weaver, and it has been very kind to me :) I have used it in 7.5 and 12 dents and am pleased with both results. I experimented with both machine wash/dry and hand wash/dry - it came out of the machine so incredibly soft! I love that little bit of texture that peeks through the weave.
I love this yarn. It weaves up a nice texture for kitchen towels and napkins. It would make a nice blanket also.
The Mallo collection is beautiful! The ‘slub’ in the yarn is very subtle but it lends a dimension when woven that belies the yarn’s initial feel and appearance. I also want to add that the Customer Service at Gist is beyond outstanding. So thrilled I found this store! Susan Parry
