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 was very happy with my order. As these were all bobbins, I knew that they would need to be packed with care. And you did that - it was a generous box size, and each one was lovingly wrapped in bubble wrap. No extra space for these to bounce around and nick each other. I ordered on Tuesday 6/30 morning, it was shipped on 7/1, and I received it on 7/2. I'm very impressed at how quickly this was done given the Covid-19 pandemic. Thank you so much!
