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.
Halcyon yarn has been my "go to" source for weaving material for a very long time; I think I started ordering from you somewhere around 1988, ever since I found your ad in Handwoven and ordered the wonderful Yarn Store in a Box. I live a long way from any weaving supply so I depend on mail order for my weaving needs and Halcyon has such a great catalog and the customer service, whether on the phone or by mail, has always been so accessible and excellent I've never had the desire to go elsewhere. My dream is to visit you all in Bath, Maine.
