I’m working with Mallo for the first time and love the texture. My only concern is that sometimes the color I see online is not what I get delivered. The Aster Mallo is not as bright as I thought it would be. I had the same issue with the Jade Beam. But… I have been very happy with the majority of the colors/yarn and will order more in the future. If I could go back a few months when I started weaving, I would order the color sample packs. Now I’ve made my own which will be helpful.
I've used Mallo yarn for several weaving projects by now, and it's exceptional yarn to work with, for both warp and weft. And I love the new colors that have been added! The Honey is a wonderful golden hue which I love to use to weave towels - it's like bringing in a bit of sunshine.
I'm obsessed with mallo, it's really fun to add some texture to a plain weave on the rigid heddle loom. I wove this up with a 10 DPI reed, all plain weave with nothing fancy, and sewed it into a really lovely top that drapes well and has a really lovely color and texture. Would recommend this as a fun weaving yarn that's easy to work with for beginners like me!
Mallo yarn is awesome. I got one in every color! It is soft to the touch yet strong and absorbent and it weaves like a dream. Fast! I love it. Making some more Seopsrall towels right now!
Super soft, no ties in the yarn, lovely to weave with
