    Great for rigid heddle weaving

    Posted by Debra on Jun 25th 2020

    This yarn is very smooth and soft, but strong. It was a joy to use on my rigid heddle loom. I set it at 10 epi as the pattern called for, and was worried that it might be too loose. But after washing, it was just right for thick towels. For a sturdy bag, I would try 12 epi. I really like this yarn.

    1# cone 5/3 Organic Cotton

    Posted by Kathy on Sep 16th 2019

    On my monitor, the product photo appeared to show light pink flecks in the windings on the small bobbin. However, the cone is just as I hoped: a beautiful unbleached natural off-white with no intermittent flecks or hints of any pink. Nice weight/thickness of the yarn; am looking forward to weaving with it.
