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 only just begun this journey with fiber. I plan on learning punch needle rug hooking as well as traditional rug hooking. There is so much to learn . . but I am so excited to get started on my first piece. The color card samples you sent me were beautiful!! I can see me adding each collection to my own over time. I can't wait for the two cards on back order as I'm sure they will be as vibrant as the ones I now have. I look forward to becoming a lifelong customer!!
