Duet Cotton / Linen Weaving Yarn ~ Dune
$ 23.00 USD
Duet - GIST's first line of weaving yarn. Dune is a lovely, sandy beige.
2 slubby plies of US grown cotton + 1 ply of French 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.
Spun in Pennsylvania at Huntingdon Yarn Mill, and dyed in North Carolina at Spartan Dyers.
Love this yarn. Have been using it for dishcloths on my Saori loom with Duet warp and Duet weft alternating with Nialin for weft. It has an amazing hand and is very easy to use. All wonderful colors.
I am teaching a warping workshop & we used Duet on a 4H workshop loom at 12EPI. I love the crisp texture for teaching, its easy to thread.
I did a sample already and it washes beatifully & finishes very soft.
I thought I was ordering a two cone set for a scarf or towel (don't remember which) that was on sale. Received one cone, and not sure how I will utilize it.
I do receive quite a few emails from vendors, so I could easily have made a mistake.
I’ve ordered several cones of the duet after I tried it out. It’s the perfect weaving yarn! It’s the perfect weight/thickness and the colors are stunning! This is a very soft cotton/linen blend and is a pleasure to weave!
My placemats used three colors of Duet - Dune, Storm, and Marble, all beautiful and with great color depth. The yarn worked well as both warp and weft with a sett of 12 epi/ppi on my floor loom. Machine washing and drying caused the yarn to bloom significantly, producing a very drapey hand.
