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 bought a set of Braid-Aids, & absolutely love how much they help. I am a beginner at making braided rugs. I'm using recycled denim from jeans that would have either been thrown away or donated to a second hand store. I tried braiding my strips prior to ordering this product, but didn't like the results. The Braid-aids easily tucks the fabric edges into the center, giving a nice finished look to the braid. They are very affordable & easy to use. i cant wait to have my braid finished & formed into my very first braided rug!
