Broke as I was weaving the towels and I got a response of sorry. A lot of money with a lot of disappointment.

Love this yarn!

Extremely pliable and easy to use. Results are soft and comfortable. Using many of these beautiful colors. Thank you!


These are the loveliest, almost romantic, pastels. The Duet palette blends very well within its color range. The strength of the fiber is remarkable given the softness after a wash. I use Duet for homemade bread wraps and napkins. They are beautiful, even when my weaving lacks expertise. Duet also mixes very well with Mallo, my very favorite slub fiber. I am not a proficient weaver, but I treasure color and blending opportunities. Duet is worth the slightly additional time it takes me to warp in ordered to achieve desired final outcome in the weaving project. Thank you Gist!

Gist’s linen yarn is as strong as you would expect, but what’s different is the pastel and soft shadings you can choose from. Other yarn stores offer bold colors. If you want that then buy on those sites, but if a softer look is what you’re after, get Gist linen.
