Yes, we are now stocking Brassard Bamboo weaving yarn in 8/2 and 16/2 counts. This yarn is a rayon made from 100% bamboo. You can use it as a straight swap for our 8/2 and 16/2 mercerised cotton. Bamboo fibre has antimicrobial properties, absorbs and wicks away moisture faster than cotton and resists creasing. It’s also biodegradable.
The Gist Duet cotton-linen towels after wet finishing. I used Chambray, Pear, Pearl and Santorini, and the free pattern from our website. There was enough yarn left over for me to freestyle the plain stripes too.
New! We have sixteen Gist weaving kits each containing all of the yarn needed to weave a beautiful project plus a free pattern (draft and detailed instructions).
These would make a great gift for your favourite weaver!
