Duet Cotton / Linen Weaving Yarn ~ Anchor
$ 23.00 USD
Duet - GIST's first line of weaving yarn. Anchor is a quiet gray.
2 slubby plies of US grown cotton + 1 ply of European tow linen. A beautiful, textured yarn designed especially for weavers. Strong enough for warp, soft enough to wear next to skin, and hardy enough for kitchen towels. Truly a versatile yarn that we hope will become a beloved staple on your loom for many kinds of projects. Comes on ¼ lb. (4 oz) cones with 600 yards per cone.
55% linen / 45% cotton. 2,390 ypp. Suitable for warp and weft, on rigid heddle, table, and floor looms. Recommended sett of 12-16 epi. Machine wash on cool. Air dry or machine dry (air drying preserves the life of linen longer). Linen gets a softer and lovelier hand with each washing.
Spun and dyed in North Carolina.
I started weaving with cottolin and then moved on to other fibers including cotton, linen, hemp, wool and others. Duet is a great yarn with both cotton and linen plies. It's strong but bright and has a great hand. I've done a couple table runners and a bunch of napkins at 10 epi - they are all wonderful!
I’m just learning little loom tapestry weaving and saw this cotton/linen advertised as both warp and weft. I wove a 3x5 inch design with this in 3 colors at 12epi and absolutely love it. Holds really well as warp and a crisp design can be achieved at 12 epi. Love the bright colors but please add some warm colors like terra cotta, brown, turquoise!
I put this into the Agnes Martin scarf, and very happy with the bright pop! Picture on Instagram. Can’t wait to try other combos in that project.
I purchased several colors of Duet and have been waiting for the perfect project to use it, my daughter's new house provided the answer a gorgeous table runner. It wove beautifully - warped without a single break and ended with a beautiful project.
So fun to use, and the subtleties in the color variation add dimension. I like how it washes, too. Love it!
