Mallo Cotton Slub Weaving Yarn ~ Lichen

Plain weave is anything but plain when woven in Mallo. The thick-and-thin nature of this cotton slub creates an elegant, delicate texture, even in the simplest of weaves. Slightly thicker than many weaving yarns, Mallo weaves up quickly on both rigid heddle and multi-shaft looms. Sturdy, soft, and absorbent, Mallo is perfect for towels, napkins, and washcloths as well as lightweight blankets, scarves, and shawls.  

  • 8oz cones / 750 yds
  • Size: similar to 3/2; 1,500 yds per pound.
  • Suggested EPI: 8-16 for rigid heddle and multi-shaft looms.
  • Care: Machine wash and dry. 
  • Made in the USA. Learn more about our sourcing here.

Best cotton slub

This yarn is a dream to weave with. From kitchen towels to an all season scarf… the nubby texture adds beautiful drape and texture.

Recovery Angels

I am in the midst of recovering from an extensive, successful surgery with an excellent prognosis. I entertained myself in the hospital by scanning the Gist website and celebrated my return home with an order placed with Gist. Gist was among the many angels that have supported me. Thank you, Gist!

Mallo yarn

I recently used Mallo yarn for the first time for a scarf. I really enjoyed weaving this yarn. I’m a new weaver and haven’t ventured into “fancy” stitches, so this slubbed cotton gives the impression of “pattern” while doing the basic plain weaving. I’d recommend this for any beginner weaver.
