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.
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.
