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.
The merino and Malabrigo lace yarns I ordered are beautiful and arrived so quickly. I am trying them out for a yardage weaving project and it was so nice to have almost instant gratification! I really like the presentation of the yarns on the website. I still have my 'Yarn Store in a Box' for back-up but I find the colors on the website to be quite accurate.
