Victorian 2-Ply Wool Yarn description:

Halcyon Yarn's Signature Victorian 2-Ply Wool is a versatile, simple sport weight yarn excellent for hand knitting or machine knitting and Victorian 2-ply is especially nice in multi-color work. Victorian 2-ply wool is an excellent wool weaving yarn. Weavers enjoy using 2-Ply Wool as warp and weft for shawls, scarves, blankets, and outerwear pieces. Our exclusive Victorian sport weight wool offers a much broader range of colors than most sport weight wools, making it an ideal yarn for colorful fair isle and multi-color sweater designs. Victorian Wool's softness is derived from a lofty spin in each ply with a slightly softer twisting than in many woolen-spun 2-ply yarns, it will soften and loft up even more when washed or fulled and the low pilling adds a long life to any piece.

Halcyon's Signature Victorian Collection yarns are custom spun exclusively for Halcyon Yarn and dyed in the USA. You'll find that each of these yarns is gorgeous and economical on it's own or combined with other yarns. The Victorian yarns offer a broad and interchangeable color palette so they coordinate beautifully with each other. Our Victorian yarns couldn't be prettier or easier to work with!

Weavers, alternate Victorian 2-Ply warp or tabby weft with Victorian Bouclé or Victorian Brushed Mohair for pattern in overshot or summer and winter. Knitters and crocheters will love double-stranding any two Victorian styles together on size 10.5 knitting needles (size K or larger crochet hook) at 3 stitches per inch for a personalized “designer” bulky yarn.

Care: Hand wash in cool water and lay flat to dry, or dry clean. Mothproofed.

Weaving tip: If you're having trouble maintaining your selvedges in balanced weaves, especially with a soft warp and light tension you might have when using the Victorian yarns, try using a strand of Pearl Cotton as a floating selvedge. These threads can be tensioned more tightly than the rest of the warp to maintain width by adding a hanging weight, then pulled out before washing.
