JaggerSpun Maine Line 2/8 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.
Special order items cannot be returned for refund.
Care Hand wash in cool water or dry clean. Lay flat to dry.
Halcyon yarn is by far my favorite yarn store. There is an excellent selection of yarns and I always have to take a gander and see if there are any books I "need". I love the yarns from local mills (bartlett, jagger), and right now I am knitting a shawl out of lace weight gemstone silk, which is just a dream. Calling it a yarn store is a bit of a misnomer though, because while knitting is my one true love, I've picked up bobbin lace making, tatting, and felting because of the selection of supplies available here. I recently made my first online order, and was quite pleased with both the availability of yarns and how quickly it was sent out. The staff are wonderful too, they always have a project or two they are working on that they can show off, and always know how to point me in the right direction. I can't say enough wonderful things about this store.
