Duet Cotton / Linen Weaving Yarn ~ Dusk
$ 23.00 USD
Duet - GIST's first line of weaving yarn. Dusk is a deep midnight blue.
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 made towels from the Duet yarn. They are absolutely my favorite towels ever. They are soft and airy but so absorbent. I love this yarn.
Can't wait to weave with this beautiful yarn!
Absolutely love this yarn whether combined with mallo, Brassards 8/2, or Duet. I have used it on my rigid heddle, 4 harness floor loom, and 8 harness table loom. After finishing it is such a nice feel fabric.
This cotton/linen blend is a beautiful yarn. Soft to the touch but with a firm hand. Easy to work with and the colors are vibrant. Perfect for that special dish towel.
I now have all of the colors of Duet. Love how it works up and the new colors are fabulous!
