Duet combines the ease of weaving with cotton with the sheen and hand of linen. The subtle variegation in the linen adds a slightly marbled visual element to projects. Buttery and smooth on a multi-shaft loom, this yarn is also a wonderful introduction to linen for rigid heddle weavers who have a few projects under their belts. Duet weaves into beautiful summer scarves and shawls, as well as heirloom-quality towels and dining linens that soften and improve over time.
I love warping with this weaving base. It makes a very stable warp and feels good in my hands as I warp the loom. The yarn washes well and the hand is softer after the wash. The color, marble, goes well with everything. You won’t be disappointed ng
Duet Cotton / Linen Weaving Yarn ~ Chambray
Light and very versatile
I found Duet easy and rewarding to work with in weaving the Gist Pinstripe napkin pattern. Very strong! I love the colors and feel of the finished project. They washed up and pressed so easily. Looking forward to doing more projects with the beautiful colors. I am very excited to give these napkins as a Christmas gift. Thank you!
