My dad wanted a good, hearty, fisherman sweater. This yarn fit the bill. It's not super soft on the cone, but it blooms in blocking and fill out. The cable definition is beautiful and the colors are rich and decadent. I wouldn't use it for close to the body garments, but a good sweater or hat, it will wear well and keep warm.

Hi,
Knitters be aware this product is not the same one finds in this manufacturer's skein products. It has not been washed (fulled),knits to a smaller gauge and is primarily meant for weavers. Strongly suggest calling the manufacturer before buying and asking your own questions about this product. So disappointed, love knitting with the skein version of this yarn and am sending all the cones back.

    Comments about Harrisville Designs Highland:

    This yarn is great it works for felting, knitting and weaving. It is the right weight for hats, gloves, socks, scarves and sweaters. Although it feels rough to begin with once it is washed and rinsed with hair conditioner it is soft and not scratchy. This yarn felts up easily making a medium weight hat, gloves, scarf or socks. It also is great for weaving.

      Comments about Harrisville Designs Highland:

      This yarn is consistently good for felting, knitting and weaving. I love the way it softens when hand washed in cold water and dried. I also love the way it felts using hot water.
      I appreciate the way things are packed and delivered. Thanks

        Comments about Harrisville Designs Highland:

        This is a great yarn. It can be used for knitting, weaving and felting. When you first touch this yarn it seems scratchy but when washed in cool water it becomes a soft fabric with great texture. When washed in hot water it felts into a soft strong fabric...
        I appreciate the service and quick delivery. Thanks

          ... has a significant amount of sizing in it... a bit stiff. Would not recommend for sensitive skin next to skin wear. Would be an great for weaving!

                  I'm using this for an original design Aran sweater for my husband. He chose this yarn and color after reviewing swatches of different yarns.

                  Service and delivery comments:

                  Delivery and communication was excellent. First delivery was left out in the rain by the delivery company. Customer service was the best I've experienced; sent a new shipment out the very next afternoon! Thank you!

                      I weave sashes for the living history community. This yarn is strong-no breaks on the loom, yet fine enough for the look I need to reproduce. The color range is sufficient. Delivery is quick. I love this yarn.
