Duet Cotton / Linen Weaving Yarn ~ Marble
$ 23.00 USD
Duet - GIST's first line of weaving yarn. Marble is Duet in it's natural un-dyed state, with a creamy cotton and a pale gray linen.
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.
I am very pleased in my dealings with GIST.
I wove one scarf with the Storm duet and it was so beautiful I bought the Pear so I could weave another scarf. This fiber is easy to warp and weave on an Ashford SampleIt loom.
I’ve only had great experiences shopping with gist and getting weaving patterns to help me learn new techniques! The alpaca wool I last used is incredibly soft and fun to work it! Wanting to weave another scarf already!
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.
