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.
What I love about Halcyon yarn is their quick responses to my questions and notifications of shipping. Their kits are convenient and beautiful. I also love the fact that many of their patterns/kits are approachable for a beginner knitter and weaver like me. The beautiful yarns make you want to jump right in to projects and not feel like "oh gee, I'm not sure I can do that".
