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.
As a weaver of over 30 years, I've purchased through a variety of dealers, but Halcyon is my number one go to place. You offer the most comprehensive selection to be found, a incredibly user friendly website, the product lines you carry are top quality, and I can literally spend hours going through your bookstore as it has so much to offer. I've purchased Halcyon products for years, and plan to be a customer for many more to come.
