My favorite weaving projects are rugs and upholstery fabrics. I've been using HD Highland (and Shetland for afghans) since 1984 (when it was $9 per cone). The available colors are perfect for color-weave and block weave projects. Rugs, blankets and afghans made of this yarn hold up well to professional cleaning.

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.

        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.

              Comments about Harrisville Designs Highland:

              I have swatches with my Highland, and whilst it felt quite coarse while I was knitting, after washing it softened very nicely. The fabric feels cushy and soft. I used a cable pattern and stitch definition wasn't great but the overall effect was pleasing. This yarn will be great for the everyday sweater I have planned and should wear very well.i love the colour palette.

              Service and delivery comments:

              As always, my yarn was delivered very quickly. I use Webs as my LYS because of my relatively remote location and I love the level of service I get. I can always rely on Webs to have what I want and to provide it promptly and at a very fair price.

              Comments about Harrisville Designs Highland:

              Used as warp thread. Very nice color selection. Sadly the cost of the warp yarn puts the price of my finished product at my retail, with no room to cover weft or include a profit.

              Comments about Harrisville Designs Highland:

              I am in the middle of knitting a sweater with this and finding that the wool is very coarse and it actually hurts my hands while knitting, am hoping that it softens on washing and blocking. The colour was just as shown in the website.

                I have been enjoying using this yarn for cabled Aran-style pullovers, it is wooly and sturdy without being too coarse. It has a nice 'sheepy' feel while still maintaining some lanolin softness. Drapes nicely after washing, shows beautiful stitch definition.

                  This yarn is very coarse, and not nice on the hands when knitting; slow in knitting because of this. I purchased this product purely for the color.
