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.

Three years ago I moved back to my home state of Massachusetts after having lived in Maine for 26 years, and loving every minute of it. One of the things I loved about Maine was Halcyon Yarn. I am a spinner and I was so thrilled to find how easy it is to go online and see the gorgeous array of fibers for spinning. And, I can easily order online and they are shipped right to my door in a matter of days. Hallelujah ! Halcyon, I Love You.
