Mallow is my favorite

I love this yarn. I had several warp yarns break and became an expert in repair but after fixing and wet finishing the towels I could not find the repairs very forgiving and I really like the texture of the finished product. Made my husband a scarf and he loves it and me!

So soft

I used the natural color Mallo cotton slub for my warp. I was very pleased with how it wound on. I am weaving kitchen towels; the weave structure is Overshot. The tabby is the Mallo, the pattern is a slightly thicker yarn. So far I am very pleased with the results. 2 towels done, 5 to go….It will be interesting how they finish….

Great Color-Sticky Yarn

The lichen is a great color way that goes well with gist’s line of cotton slub. However, it’s a little more sticky than the natural and forest color ways I’m currently using on a project. I notice the difference with every pass, but I don’t think the stickiness compromises the yarn’s integrity at all, just a really different feel.

Mixed Twill Scarf-

As always with Gist Yarn, a lovely and easy process selecting a pattern and tempting yarn- Someone posted photos of their final product which gave me a whole new idea about what colors to choose- I have never used a table loom but Christine has already been helpful so am not too worried- I have used the Mallo before and was very satisfied with the feel of it-
