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've always had great customer service at Halcyon Yarn and this is no exception. My order of Harrisville potholder kits for our goddaughters arrived more quickly than anything else I've ordered this holiday season. Thank you for helping to make for a memorable holiday for the girls. They're going to love learning to be weavers!
