Excellent Warping Yarn

I've never been disappointed in any yarns from Gist. This Mallo Cotton Slub is one of my favorites to use as a warp, giving a subtle depth to make weft colors pop.

My favorite yarn

I am new to weaving so am trying out different yarns. So far Mallo is my favorite. It weaves a nice medium thick towel that is absorbent and soft. I also am so happy with Gist as they answer any questions I have and are very helpful.

Mallo table runner

New to weaving. Used Mallo to make a runner for my daughter in law. Finished product looks great. I still plan on steam iron to finish. Rigid heddle 12.5 dent

Mallo is the best!

I absolutely love this yarn. It has a soft feel the more you wash it, the color selection is great, with soft hues, not sharp. This color lend to modern feel in weaves with the natural Mallo.

My favorite cotton to weave with! Weaves up beautifully for scarves - lightweight, and soft with a gorgeous drape!
