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.
Ordering yarn for a sweater online felt a little daunting but I trusted Halcyon to stock only the best yarn and to describe it well and I was right! When it arrived (Malabrigo Rios Superwash Merino) it was glorious. Beautiful color and lovely to work with. I also ordered some rug yarn and the colors are just as I'd hoped. And despite being warned my order might be delayed for obvious and understandable reasons, I received it quickly. Always a pleasure to shop with Halcyon.
