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.
The service I received from Halcyon was everything I could have asked for! Friendly responses,both by phone and email, to my questions and prompt delivery of my product were so satisfying. The quality of the product was also excellent, as usual!! I'll definately order from Halcyon again and that's the highest praise I can give!
