Gist Duet Cotton Linen - Pear
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.
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 and dyed in North Carolina. Approximate wraps per inch: 25 (may vary due to tightness of wrapping and slubiness).
4 oz cones, 600 yards
Machine wash on cool. We always recommend air drying linen. Linen gets a softer and lovelier hand with each washing.
We are very excited and honoured to have been asked by Gist to stock this beautiful cotton-linen yarn exclusively spun and dyed in 16 gorgeous colours for Gist in the US.
Lots of free patterns for both rigid heddle and shaft loom weavers are available from the GIST website. https://www.gistyarn.com
These yarns will also work beautifully with other yarns from the My Fine Weaving Yarn web shop. Please get in touch if you need advice.
