Duet is 2 slubby plies of US grown cotton + 1 ply of European tow linen, and is 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. 

    Suitable for warp and weft, on rigid heddle, table, and floor looms. Recommended sett of 12-16 epi. Spun and dyed in North Carolina.  Approximate wraps per inch: 25 (may vary due to tightness of wrapping and slubiness).

    GIST offers a wide range of FREE rigid heddle and multi shaft weaving projects that are perfect for beginner, intermediate and advanced weavers - they have something for everyone! Learn how to weave kitchen towels, scarves, table runners, cowls, tops, ponchos, and rugs on your rigid heddle loom, or throw blankets, kitchen towels, scarves, table runners, baby blankets, aprons, cowls, tops, ponchos, and rugs on your multi-shaft loom.

    chine dry (air drying preserves the life of linen longer). Linen gets a softer and lovelier hand with each washing.
