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.
Thanks Halcyon. Hauling out my rug hooking frame that I trash picked in Ohio 20 years ago, I thought I could pass some corona stay at home time by doing some rug hooking. I quickly ran through my yarn scraps. I finished the seat pad for my husband (The queen bee icon from nytimes puzzles) but still had 5 seat pads left (customized to each family member's fanny). I was happy to find your site up and was able to purchase additional yarn. It arrived very promptly. The quality was well, quality. I think it helping to save my sanity during these challenging times.
