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.
Having ordered from Halycon Yarn many times I never worry about the color, textures or quality and they are always excellent. Customer Service is very helpful and pleasant. Shipping to Canada has been very quick with good packaging so my orders are clean and undamaged upon delivery. These are all reasons I am a return customer. The entire experience is always consistently excellent! I recently purchased some patterns and was happy to receive them online, almost immediately after my order was placed. (and paid for).
