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.
Dealing with Halcyon Yarn is like dealing with a good neighbor or friend. Their word is their bond and the products that I have received have always shipped quickly, been received in good order, and been exactly what I wanted/ordered. If there is ever a backorder, I know quickly and they stay in touch until it can be shipped. I have nothing but good things to say about this company.
