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 have been accessing yarns, fibers, and equipment from Halcyon Yarn for a number of years now, and have never been disappointed. But what I love best about shopping with them is their customer service. Whenever I’ve had a question or concern, I have been able to connect quickly with someone in the know, who has treated me with great courtesy and patience.
