A classic woolen-spun yarn, Harrisville Highland yarn on cones will shrink, bloom and full when washed and is suitable for weaving as well as knitting. Allow 15% for shrinkage and take-up.
Weaving Yarn Tip: Unscoured yarn contains some spinning oils and has an unfinished look and feel. Harrisville Highland will shrink and full when washed, it is the same yarn as the skeined version but the spinning oils and tension on the cone will appear thinner than when it is finished.
I'm a beginning knitter and I feel I've learned a lot from the patterns & beautiful yarns offered by Halcyon Yarn.
Waiting for the new yearly catalogue has become very suspenseful! I also enjoy the sense of joining the large community of knitters and becoming familiar with the people who work at Halcyon Yarn.
And of course, the swift service is just unbeatable!
