Harrisville Shetland Yarn - Unwashed Cones

Item: 0094400C Color:440 19Blackberry
Color ships 1 - 2 business days. Large orders call to check.

Great yarn for lightweight blankets and Shetland style sweaters. Harrisville Shetland is available in a wide color range makes it an easy choice for pattern weft for overshot coverlets.

Well coordinated color choices including subtle heathers are ideal for finer weight Turkish and Fair Isle knitting designs.

Weavers: For overshot use a warp of Homestead Cotton or our 10/2 Pearl Cotton at a sett of 15 epi. For all wool fabrics and blankets warp at a sett of 10 to 12 epi for a fabric with more drape after fulling.

25 - 30 Mircron count fiber for softness and loft.
