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.
I don't live far from Halcyon Yarns, a 2 hour drive, so I have always made it an outing going to their beautiful, wonderful store, making sure to get a lobster roll too!
But during these Covid times I opted for the internet. Their website was easy to navigate. I had a few questions so I called and spoke with a helpful, cheerful human. So a good experience all around.
Sadly I did return the yarn I ordered because of color. I am a color person and obviously need to see it up close and personal.
That said, the return process was easy too!
