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.
As I have come to expect from Halcyon Yarn, my order was processed and shipped very quickly and the yarn arrived in perfect condition. It may seem an odd thing to say about a yarn order, "perfect condition", but I have ordered this same yarn from elsewhere and it arrived with the skeins jumbled together and since this particular yarn just begs to felt even with minimal handling, it was not a good thing to see it all mashed together. Halcyon Yarn does it right!
