Watershed Yarn by Harrisville Designs description:
Take a vicarious canoeing trip down the watershed of Harrisville, New Hampshire where the water bubbles up from natural springs from the top at Spoonwood Pond down to the bottom of Lake Skatutakee, Drink in the super-heathered colors of Watershed Yarns, each color blend inspired by the natural elements you see as you paddle along the rivers, lakes, and streams.
These color blends in Watershed heather yarns replicate the essence of the elements for which they are named.
Spun in Harrisville's own modern mills near the original water-powered mill, the luscious and subtle colors of this minimally processed, cushy super-heathered woolen yarn will knit to diverse gauges ( 5.2 stitches/inch on US 6 Needles • 5.0 stitches/inch on US 7 Needles • 4.5 stitches/inch US 8 Needles) making it suitable for an incredible range of projects.
Care: Handwash gently in lukewarm water, using a mild detergent. Rinse completely. Do not wring out. Squeeze gently and then roll in towel. Lay flat to dry and block to original shape.
