In June of 2019 we released Duet, our first house line of weaving yarn. Duet is a beautiful, textured yarn made from 2 slubby plies of US grown cotton + 1 ply of European tow linen. Since then, we've sent thousands of cones out to all of you, and published almost a dozen patterns highlighting the yarn.
The initial release of Duet was powered entirely by your pre-orders. As a small business, taking on a project like developing a new line of yarn would have been impossible without the support of our community. Your belief in our team and vision made all of this possible.
This week we are introducing 4 new colorsto the Duet line, bringing the collection to 12 shades.
We are once again inviting our community to be a part of this launch with a pre-order. Your support earns you a special pre-order discount (see details below), a free color card, and the joy that comes from supporting the US farmers, mill, and dye house that bring this yarn to life.
Your yarn will ship in late March, 2020.

When do these ship?
We expect to ship in late March of 2020.
Is Duet suitable for warp?
Yes! Linen by nature requires a little more care than working with a smooth cotton. We recommend keeping your tension a bit looser than you might with a 100% cotton and advancing your warp often.
Is Duet suitable on a rigid heddle loom?
Yes! We recommend a 12 or 15 dent heddle for towels and a 10 dent heddle if you want a lightweight, airy fabric.
