JaggerSpun Maine Line 2/20's Yarn description:
These versatile, high quality worsted spun yarns have become staples of commercial and recreational knitters, weavers, and others. Perfect for Estonian Haapsalu Shawls or for weaving very high quality garment fabric.
Made in Maine of soft yet durable, 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. Worsted spun 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 low-impact synthetic dyes possible. Excess dyes may be present in some highly saturated 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.
Care: Hand wash in cool water or dry clean. Lay flat to dry.
I just received several cones of 8/4 cotton carpet warp to use to weave dish towels. It's a perfect yarn size for the 12 dent rigid heddle loom I like to use. The yarn has a nice feel to it, though I haven't woven with it yet. But I've woven with other cotton yarns from Halcyon before and loved the result. I expect no less from this yarn.
