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 micron count fiber for softness and loft.)
It is such a pleasure to do business with Halcyon. I feel like there are real humans there who care about the projects we make with the yarn we buy . They do their best to fulfill my order as best they can in times when there are shortages due to covid. The low supply of Harrisville Shetland has had me stymied on a blanket project but Halcyon has done their best to help me get what they have in a timely fashion. Thanks Rose!
