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.
25 - 30 micron count fiber for softness and loft.)
Received my weaving towel kit and even though I haven't started weaving the towels yet I am very please with the quality of the yarn, colors and directions. I am a long time weaver who stopped weaving several years ago but missed it and bought another loom and decided to start again with Halcyon towel kit. Everything is great. I have always been pleased with items I have ordered from Halcyon. Thank you for another great order, fast shipping and great price
