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.
Not only did my yarn and needles come promptly, I got a call from Halcyon to clarify my order. In this time of stress, my own "therapy" of knitting has been a huge help to me. A friendly voice on the other end of the phone, was delightful. I am a nurse and working in the thick of COVID, so this means a lot to me. Thank you.
