A versatile yarn, Duet is strong enough for warp, soft enough for garments, and hardy enough for kitchen towels. Made from 55% European tow linen and 45% USA-grown cotton.
Machine wash in cool water. Air dry or machine dry (air drying preserves the longevity of linen).

Love weaving with this yarn for lacy projects.
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.
A 25 dent reed would probably be best as the cotton yarns twists and twists around itself when winding through the reed and heddles. The finished product is so nice though, it’s worth the frustration with the twisting.
Another superb yarn from Gist!
Just a great fiber to
Work with, the colors are true to the photos and really fun to weave. I’ve used both a red-yellow-orange pallet and now a blue-green and just love the color saturation. No wushu washy colors here!!!
