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 have been a customer of Halcyon Yarn for more years than I can count (25?). Every interaction and order has been cheerfully handled. A recent order resulted in a question about wrong parts and/or adapted equipment. My query was answered quickly and with excellent advice on how to remedy the problem. Thank you Halcyon for being there all these years!
