JaggerSpun Maine Line 3/8 Yarn description:
These versatile, high quality worsted spun yarns have become staples of commercial and recreational knitters, weavers, and others. Made in Maine of soft, medium grade wool, these yarns will easily make a way into clothing and other products. As a worsted spun yarn, it is smoother and shinier than woolen spun yarns, such as Harrisville. They also won't full as much when washed/finished, so plan on a closer sett or tighter gauge (finish your swatch to determine if you like the finished piece). JaggerSpun is dyed with the finest dyes possible. Excess dyes may be present in some colors so sample first. If excess dye is present, skein the yarn and rinse until the water runs clear. Deep purples may not be colorfast when exposed to sun, so avoid prolonged exposure to bright light.
• Please note, not all colors available in mini cones.
Special order items cannot be returned for refund.
Care Hand wash in cool water or dry clean. Lay flat to dry.
My most recent experience, not surprisingly, required the kind guidance of one of the special people at Halcyon. I jumped on the opportunity to purchase Douceur et Soire at a considerable discount. Problem: I ordered a color that had too few left in stock for the number I ordered. Halcyon let me know in time to order a different color with enough stock to fill my needs. Another store would not have responded in time to offer an alternative -- I know because that has happened to me with other online orders. Also, I want to recount that I can only visit the bricks and mortar every 3 or 4 years - but each time I get there, I am welcomed. I may not be remembered as a returning purchaser, but that does not hinder the level of service and courtesy extended to me. Sometimes, I mention that I have long been a loyal customer, but more often I just make my choices and pay for them without comment. No matter which, the warmth and graciousness are equal - and beyond many shops where everyone knows my name. Thank you.
